U2.com's latest subscription "gift"

U2.com has just announced the new bonus gift for ordering or renewing a subscription. It is a double vinyl album of a rare, early U2 performance.

Well, that sounds great -- except that I suspect there a lot of fans (including me) who do not have the equipment to play a vinyl album and are not going to buy a turntable just to listen to this record. So we really have no incentive to renew (except for the chance to buy tickets the next time there's a tour). Why can't U2.com make this album available in an alternative format for those who are not able to play it on vinyl?

I think it will also be a download. Read this statement from the announcement -

"Delivery of the physical product is expected in Spring 2015."

I'm pumped about it. Have Joshua Tree and a few other albums on vinyl but don't own a record player... this will probably push me over the edge.

i have a newer "antique-looking" radio/cd player/turntable that i bought about 10 years ago sitting in one of my living areas at home. I do not own any vinyl records so this will be a great gift.

I'm actually getting one from Amazon($50) this Christmas. I will also be getting SOI on vinyl and perhaps a few others too.

Dan Smee was really talking it up about the sound quality, so I figured why not?

I have a question about the subscription. I subscribed in early August of this year, so my subscription doesn't expire until August 2015. I really want the new gift, though, so if I subscribe again now, will my subscription extend another year, to August 2016, or just to November 2015?

Your subscription will extend to August 2016.
BTW, you will also receive the new gift when you resubscribe in August 2015. And keep in mind the package will not be shipped until spring 2015 (which may mean late May or so).

In short, you have plenty of time to renew.

U2.com's latest subscription "gift"

Renewed mine today😎😎😎been a member since day one and ive always thought the package is worth the cash.

worth the £25 anyway.The pre sale code/ double vinyl/ download and 25% store discount means its well worth it

Does anybody use the zootopia forum? I seem to stick to this one and the atu2 forum. When ever i go on there it seems dead!

Fucking hell. North Side Story was just delivered to me today. Is it just me, or is the print really small? I've never worn glasses and have been putting off an eye exam. Don't think I'm going to be reading it till I have one done. Don't they know U2's fanbase is ageing and have poor vision?? Or was this gift only intended for the pop kids who have good vision?

You can get a record player very cheap these days and as others said it will be downloadable as well. Personally I think it is a very good gift.

Live from London's legendary Marquee Club, in 1980, here's the cover of the upcoming double 10" vinyl release - available only to U2.com subscribers.

'Another Time, Another Place' is now in production - more details soon.
