1. "Advance screening"

    Did I just have to sign in to my paid account to watch an ad?

Guy did a terrible SOI promo marketing. Granted, Bono's accident contributed to the band disappearing for months, but still. It feels to me that Guy's priority is Madonna and then there's U2.
    Besides, the completely awful and plain merchandise for the last tour, starting with that boring photo of the band in bed as the main poster for the tour was a major let-down for me.
    Regarding a stronger social media presence, I think that's something that had to happen because of the times. Bono, Adam and Edge have always been very tech curious and they are always exploring new ways to reach the fans. That would have happened with Paul McGuinness too.
    Of course, this is just my opinion.[/quote


    Them getting into bed with Live Nation was a big part of it too, in my opinion. Letting them take over the fan club and merch store was a let down also...

    I blame Guy O'Seary (is that correct?) for the poor managing decisions these last years. Who thought that putting the band answering lame questions with shitty stream was a good idea? Lame subscription gifts and now this JT package which is a rip- off for long time fans.

    +1 completely agree
  4. Agree as well. I just cannot believe that there's still no information about this years gift for subscribers.

    Admittedly, I thought (hoped) that something like the MSG show would be the gift this time around.

    Here's hoping it's another JT show (Tempe?) - or heck, something from the Popmart tour...most fanclub fans appreciate Pop, no? Although, I suppose one could argue that the Hasta La Vista release a decade or so ago was their "homage" to that tour.

    In any event, no more books or artwork, please. No tote bags, fridge magnets, toques or onesies, either. Just MUSIC....please be about the music.
  6. If you buy buy the 'Vinyl Super Deluxe' boxset or the 'CD Super Deluxe' boxset this includes a digital download card. This presumably contains a code to download the tracks from an online store. Does anyone know what the format of the downloaded tracks will be? ie. MP3 from the Universal store or ALAC from the Apple iTunes Store.

    I would like to keep the vinyl or CDs unopened and import (lossless) tracks into my iTunes library.

    You probably have to open them to get the download code

  8. Me too. The super deluxe of Achtung Baby is not available for streaming. I have it on cd.
  9. Just the two-disc version is available, from what I can tell, on Apple Music.

    It's not all of it but it's still quite a bit.
