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.
"Apple made sense. It's the coolest company around and there was no money changing hands. We all agreed it was the right company to work with and we could both benefit from this relationship. Of course, there was grumbling from what you might call the militant wing of the U2 fan base. They accused us of selling out."
