Two of the team from the Chris Moyles morning show on Radio 1 went, apparentely they got quite drunk and were air-drumming lol. They both said it was a great album though, but didn't go into any more detail.

Listening party rules at Uni in Paris: all cell phones, recorders and other electronic devices to be left with security.

wear two pairs of underpants, have a rcorder in between them, with 2 hours of recording time. Hit record befre you go in, and bring an extra recorder so you can remove it and not raise any suspicion that you have another one

It has been more quiet compared to the last two albums. A month before things were buzzing like crazy. They are still buzzing like crazy within the U2 community, but with radio and the general public, not so much.

Make it all plastic somehow, because I'm sure they have metal detectors.

they sell music in stores? do you have to bring your hard drive with you?

i'm confused by this "store" theory.

I'll be happy if it doesn't leak... Less temptation for me to listen before the proper release.

the one thing I wanted U2 to get from Radiohead was the concept of a world-wide release date. rather than mess aroud with dates that are a week staggered apart, practically inviting pirating, why not release it all the same day. you can make it a Tuesday or Thursday if you care that much about US Billboard Charting (which, if you're U2, shouldn't matter a lick), or put in the extra elbow grease and release it worldwide on a friday or something.

It's too bad. Because for anyone who isn't in ireland, it's not going to be a fresh listen. and there will be a bunch of people who will read reviews for it, go to get it from Itunes or something, see it's not there, and proceed to pirate it.

It's 2009. multiple release dates is SO 2007

stealth and promotion really ummm are opposites.

so if U2 is stealth about this which they are, they aren't promoting it (which is true, and a huge disappointment).

They actually DO have metal detectors at some listening parties. There was more security surrounding the last Linkin Park album than at the airport!

Can we stop with the McGuinne$$ bull?
I find it really insulting.
He has always treated the fans really well and has kept the band going for over 30 years.
If you really feel he is a greedy bastard then you should feel the same way about the boys since he is part of the whole.
It's pretty ironic that fans who want to download the album for free and not pay for it accuse someone else of being greedy and selfish.
