New subscribers gift for 2021

With 2020 almost wrapped up it's time for speculating and ideas about the new subscribers gift. Last two gifts were great imo, (OK, the dvd should have been a blu-ray) but now, after a relative quiet year on the U2-front (and a 2021 will be a 'calm' year too) I'm quite curious what will be next. What makes sense? Again I've got some ideas! I think any of us have!

1. A Rare and Remastered cd part two (and download/stream for the 'digital' collectors): with inclusion of the original meant Songs of Ascent, including a polished studioversion of Mercy , first studio take of Every Breaking Wave, North Star, Winter (movie version), 'Where the shadows fall' (from the Willie Nelson movie, not released at all at this point). In short: enough to fill one or two cd's.

2. The soundtrack to the forthcoming JT-tour movie 'Heartland' on cd

There 's plenty of material to choose I think. Give us something to look forward to in these times. The ATYCLB-box (with hardly rare material) was such an anti-climax last year.

A lock of Adam's Covid hair or beard once he visits a barber.

I was kind hoping for a collection of spoons.

I miss the word "gift" being in quotes in the last thread title.

Either that or toss an R in there between the G and the I.

Hopefully, if they persist with horribly outdated tech like cds or dvds , they offer choices to fans not stuck in the 1990s and give a cheaper digital only, or premium physical format (blu ray/vinyl) choice.

I hear they recently found a large box of The Edge's brother's plectrums from when he was briefly in the band. They plan on sending one out to each fan club member (while supplies last).

At this stage, I just don't know what they can release which will be of genuine interest to the hardcore fans? If the "vaults" are as bare as we all suspect, or stuff is being held back for future albums or reissues, then I can only suspect we'll get a 12" with 6 remixes of You're The Best Thing About Me.

If they cut Red Flag Day from it again they can shove it up their asses.

I already have this boot anyway.

I mean, it’s not the worst one they’ve done, it’s actually quite a nice show to have officially, especially with the orchestra on stage for the R&H tracks.

I really hope it’s the full show, but who hasn’t got the bootleg?

They should have used lockdown or a break in activity to get their sound guys to start mixing live shows from their career and start selling them via their website for £10 or something.

The cover is nausea-inducing. It's hideous.

Which begs the question: why no t-shirt of the album cover?

When do you have to renew for $40 by before it expires?

I'd prefer an official release of that AIWIY they did for the BBC.
