As a serious collector of U2 I have also collected many bootleg pressings on vinyl and some CD box sets. You can expect these 2018 box sets to be with a ridiculous asking price now.
In comparison to 20 years ago when you could search for some excellent bootleg pressed recordings at very good prices, these are well off the radar in both quality and price.
More than likely these initial releases will be of Russian origin until other 'pressings' arise from an European distribution who usually make multiple legs of concerts available often in very good packaging for a fraction of the cost.
"It can be tough being a U2 fan because we've been around a long time. People either love us or loathe us."

The song 'New Year's Day' is about the solidarity movement going on in Poland in the early 1980's. The government had promised changes and reforms, which would take effect on Jan. 1 of the following year, but the promises were empty.
