.
Heroin addicts have a similar problem.

Another thing I completely forgot about the first Wembley show, was it was the first time Salman Rushdie appeared in public in quite some time. Momentous occasion indeed.

Hi I was sent an e-mail asking me the full concert dates, do you want me to post here ?? ( please remember, those concerts aren't my own choice - I don't like Sarajevo, for example -, they were chosen by collectors and fans )

Well, if this is true, would this truly mean the complete death of U2BloodRedSky.com, and any chance of ever coming back with the download FTP?

It was a LOT of fun while it lasted.

let us suppose that fans of U2 around the world are 100. Of them, 80 have Internet. Of the 80 fans, 50 have enough speed conexion requests to download concerts. of the 50 fans, 20 have credit card, being able to buy songs in Internet... with luck, will have 2 of 10 fans that will be able to download the concerts that they wanted. Sincerely, and with all my respect to the band, if U2 are going to do something with bootlegs (thing that seems to me very positive) is better they think about all fans, and not just in few privileged people

Agreed. The Pearl Jam route of releasing pressed discs in cheap cardboard packaging is the way to go.
We have plenty of creative U2 fans who can create custom jewel case art for those who want it.

Great News !!!

Bands should have used this medium from the start to get their live recordings to their fans.

In fact, they should release CD's of their shows without the need for any marketing/advertising - their core fans would run to the stores.

I agree with Skwege.
It would be easier and better for the fans if they'd just put out live shows (with very likely great quality) in cardboard packages for a reasonable price like Pearl jam did.
I don't know if they'd release ALL shows, maybe put a poll on their website or something and let fans pick.

As was suggested. They should just do archive releases. Possibly following that suggested list. Then they wouldn't need to worry too much about repetitive setlists. Just release a show from each leg of each tour.
Nonetheless the band should mess around with altering the setlist more.
