Great work by our tours team and especially Aaron who acquired the tape! 

Anyone listened to the samples - whats your thoughts?

Will the whole show be available at some point? The samples are great but just a tease!

Iím not sure - bearing in mind Aaron (who is an avid collector of all things U2) paid a fair wee sun for it I really donít know if he will.

Really? Where does it say that in the article? It merely says atU2 acquired it, came into possession of it.

Is that even his decision to make? He owns the tape but doesnít U2 own the music it contains?  Wouldnít anyone in possession of that tape need U2ís permission to make it publicly available?

I realize in actual practice these things are overlooked but in this case with @U2 involved (if it is) seems like explicit permission would be a good idea.

I understand that he paid a lot. And that's already questionable, if you want my opinion. But what's the point in showing off if it's not shared ? Genuinely asking, because right now, it's just a matter of "hey people, I have something uber rare that nobody else can have" and @U2 is getting a lot of hype from it. Do you support him not sharing ? What's your strategy, here ?

It's taking us back to the old days of bootleging when an elite of collectors had access to the best recordings and the rest of the world had no right because they weren't worthy.

And now, @U2 is posting this article on Facebook, stating that Aaron got the tape for free... I'm confused.

I'd go by the article - must have been my bad and my misunderstanding - the Sun spoke directly to him.

I think all that's going on is the Tours team have got detail they didn't have before - this tape is part of it. They have done a huge exercise in piecing together
 early set lists - simple as that. Its been picked up on I guess as its a pretty special find.

They do - even among the heavier guitars you can hear Edges distinctive chimes
