I can only hope some generous U2 fan(s) will share any extra tracks with the rest of us.

And I hopefully the extra tracks will be like the old days with Holy Joe and Lady with the Spinning Head. I used to like some of the B Sides much better than some of the A sides on the album. Always fun!

Very interesting... I mean, You Can't Give Away was seen in several fake tracklists as a bonus track, but I don't think there was any mention to a song called The Mirage if I remember correctly. Although she says that she discovered this doing some "looking through internet". So

Well at least it's not NLOTH 2 or some remix of boots right? She would've recognized them I hope?

U2 - No Line On The Horizon [2009] [128Kbps] [Exclusive Bonus Track] | u2 | isoHunt - the BitTorrent and P2P search engine

UK iTunes is "live" now and has;
Tracks 1-11
+
Linear Video
Fez Video
Digital Booklet

+ regular version both are now in iTunes top 5

so no extra "audio" for Blighty...

i can't believe this Nicole person from ITunes would use a fake torrent as a source for answering a customer's question.

Man, I hope this is true. Although, like I said before, the person who emailed me yesterday thought it might be "Love You Like Mad". But the above tracks seems much more likely. I really hope they post them tomorrow.

Of course not, but if there's one place saying that The Mirage is a bonus track, you can bet that there's plenty of others saying the same. It's the internet.
And she said she discovered this "looking through the internet". If there was a reliable place confirming those two as the bonus tracks, I'm sure we would have find out about it by now.

Howdy to you Mrs._Garrison and hey, Khanada_Rhodes.

.:MrMacPhisto:. and mikal, I do have these concerns about her "sources" via the internet. I don't see why iTunes shoudl be able to hide the product info from us, even to the extent that she was not able to find it internally. I went ahead and pre-ordered this version, but will monitor iTunes through tomorrow and likely cancel the pre-order if it's a couple of videos or something we can in fact get elsewhere.

Well the UK site is definitely not showing any new audio for either version, Amazon UK MP3 has the 1-11 and no extras either:

7digital UK, same..
U2 - No Line On The Horizon MP3 Downloads - 7digital

5 Uk pounds though!

exactly. ITunes would have enticed me to keep my pre-order if they would have just told me what i was getting.

either way, thanks for the info.

yeah, it ticks me off that every other country has made their bonus tracks known in itunes, yet the us version is holding out for some reason. if need be, i'll just cancel this version and wait for my box set to arrive. i really don't need three copies of this album anyway. (i also pre-ordered the vinyl set.)

Yeah, well anyway, thanks for the info.
And who knows... maybe this time the U.S. is getting the "real" bonus tracks in order to boost sales there.

I wonder what is going on with U2's Itunes page in the US. If you go to their main page it has a blurb about The Complete U2 & their latest album HTDAAB. It's been like that for a few days now....and no listing of bonus tracks of course.

I noiced that too, The Passenger. And that is the announcement from when The Complete came out in conjunction with HTDAAB. I don't know if it's a goof or if they're going to make it available again with NLOTH. BTW, I missed it last time around, so I don't have LoveTown, Boston/Paradie Theater, or the Early Demos, and would consider purchasing it for those.

I'm glad I was able to help with some of the mysterious tracks info, but the sources still make me unsure.

Fez video is 5 mins of footage from the riad.

The most interesting bit is the amazing intro to Magnificent that they scrapped, with local percussionists I think. It's a bit trancey. And also some early lyrics to unknown caller...

Makes me a bit sad watching it TBH, I think the album was shaping up to be very different back then...
