Ok... so it’s a DVD.  I hope it’s a bluray not just a DVD... I’m guessing that this won’t be available on Amazon / shops? I like it... but i’m getting an odd feeling about this one.

The DVD seems to be an early edition of a wider release that may be upcoming.

So pay more now for an inferior product (dvd compared to bluray) when a better and likely less expensive product will be released later.  Ummmm... unless this isn’t accompanied by downloadable tracks from this show as well as all other tracks played on the tour... i’m not feeling much of an incentive to “buy in”. I like the idea of this gift... but i want a bluray.

I do very much look forward to the DVD. Having been at the Berlin shows with all the ups and downs - the uncertainty of what is going to happen when the Sept. 1 show was stopped and then the relieve and that vibe when everybody came back on Nov 13th. There is a lot of that in that show. A lot of thankfulness on the bands side. Also the visuals at the end of City of blinding lights. I think this will be a very special package.

If it is indeed a DVD, it's probably the worst fan-club gift I can remember. It's a slap in the face really. They KNOW that most fans are going to buy the concert in a higher quality once released. So they toss us a version that costs the price of a blank disc for a $50 investment and then ring the cash register once again when the blu-ray / 4K version comes out. I'm never the cynical guy, but this really sucks.

100% agree! they did the same for from the sky down....most of us paid a small fortune for the deluxe versions of achtung and it was the dvd...a few months later a blu ray with additional extras was then released.

Yeah this DVD crap is just that: CRAP! Who even still makes DVDs? What year is it? Maybe they can give us the 8-track tape boxset of the audio.

At least I can play a DVD. Last year's gift of a CD I don't even have anything to play it on anymore. I didn't get to see the tour so will take anything as it will still be a decent production. I guess this means they will put out a Joshua Tree Tour DVD/Bluray for Christmas.

All DVD players can play CDs.  In case you want to play last year’s “gift”
