No need to worry about Propaganda!

this latest report from www.youtwo.net makes it seem like there's no need to worry about U2 and prop. yay!

YouTwo.net Exclusive!

YouTwo.net has learned that the next issue of Propaganda, which is scheduled
to be mailed within the next few weeks, will be the last issue of the fan club magazine.
A source at dSIDE, the Irish magazine that has been producing Propaganda for the
past two years, has confirmed the next issue will be a "big, final farewell issue."

The dSIDE source hinted that the magazine is not ending, but only changing formats.
The U2 team "are keen to put everything online," the source reported.

Fans can expect to see the magazine move to an online format at U2.com, the band's
official web site. Watch U2.com and U2propaganda.com for an official announcement.

Hmmm, I made this prediction in another thread. I would act like I had insider info but it was just a guess on my part.

I wonder if you will need a special password or something for the Prop section? Should be interesting.

So this means I won't get the four issues promised me when I subscribed? They didn't come through with tickets for me for any show either. But I'll forgive them if they include an Elevation Live CD in this final issue.

It better be exclusive -- I paid for a membership to only get one issue, so it better have been worth it.

Email cecilia@u2propaganda.com or terri@u2propaganda.com for information on your subscription (as far as a possible refund if you want one).

One thing to note... from what I have also heard... U2.com IS the replacement.

And with this type of attitude, you wonder why U2 won't tour Europe again this summer. Now we know why - it's because of Salome's sarcasm that the tour was cancelled. Bad Salome!

I thought it was because they are in the news 17 hours every day and because after working on regular basis for over a year they need 5 months rest

but I can live with all of it being my fault too

I wonder if this means that we will get some sort of refund. I only signed up for the magazine about a month ago, and I didn't shell out my hard earned cash (especially with the Canada -> US exchance) for one issue!!

*Crosses fingers that it will include some fabulous bonus item to make it worthwhile*

I wonder if this means that the exclusive ticket offers are going to go bye-bye...

Makes sense why they have stopped new subscriptions then and makes me believe that this won't be a password type deal to read. It'll probably be a free for all. Grrrr.

One issue, no tickets... and a lot of $$$. So glad I subscribed.

Exactly! Prop got me into the heart 5 times. I have 2 subscriptions and it was still worth every penny even without a magazine.

Not to mention the great seats I received from them for the Zoo and Popmart tours.

Angel, I think you are correct. It will be a complete free for all with tickets the next time around.

GAH!!! EXACTLY!

Why? WHY???? Why are they doing this??? I don't want a website. I dont' want a freaking refund. I want more issues of Propaganda dammit!!!! That's right, I want an actual *magazine*...that's glossy and has pretty color photos, that includes special goodies and surprises, that I can freaking TOUCH with my HANDS for chrissakes!!! GAAAHH!!

Well, at least now we know this has nothing to do with anything going on within the band. Now all they have to do is explain why they suddenly cancelled the tour. Then everyting will be PEACHY!!

Probably, but it would be very cool if there were some sort of online ticketing area for members only. I used to belong to a few different fan clubs for other bands and the online ticketing was quite nice. I doubt it will happen though.

But U2.com is lame and doesn't work very well. And as for getting tickets through U2.com, didn't that not work so hot last time? I'd like the magazine. It's hard to take my computer to read in bed.

Actually the problem with the U2.com pre sale was that it was free to register. If they had a section of U2.com that you had to pay a premium (ie $20 per year) to access and one of the benefits was that those that subscribed would have the same type of ticket offer as Prop. That would work. They could also include exclusive sound and video clips not available elsewhere in this section and offer a CD every 4 or 5 years, just like Prop. They could issue a password that is exclusive to your email address for the special section and ticket offer. It wouldnt be that difficult, I just dont think they will do it.
