DVD Sold Out!

In the North Shore area of Boston (Beverly, Salem, Danvers, Peabody, Gloucester, etc.) the Best Buy in the Liberty Tree Mall sold out of the DVD!!

Gasp!

I had to get a raincheck. I asked about the special CD and they handed me one without question. Yay! At least I was able to get this item.

One Best Buy person expressed surprise that this item was sold out (non-U2 fan, I'm sure - hmmmph!). However, her coworker, a young lad, stated that "U2 rocks" and wasn't surprised at all. My guess is that they seriously underestimated how popular this DVD will be, especially in the Boston area (like duh... a Boston show sells out in Boston...how odd).

So I must wait. Still, thought I'd tell you all that the DVD appears to be selling well in my area.

Oh, don't worry, that's on film all right - why it's all over the 'net. I've never seen someone so "close" to a doll before.

Sorry Doctorwho-I live in MA too-if I had an extra-I'd send it to you. I got mine in NH the day it came out-around 10 am-and they only had about 15 left.

I went back yesterday to get the free CD-and they had no DVD's. They didn't have enough copies to satisfy the demand.

And I should put it in the other thread-but your DVD offer-BIG THUMBS UP. My player won't play VCD's-not sure if my computer will either-but someone else should get it anyway

Over here in my home town my local MVC store are only getting in 10 copies of the DVD tomorrow (26th, which is the UK release date)
Glad I got mine reserved and I also have the day booked off from work just for the DVD! Did the same when ATYCLB came out too! lol
Oh, and my widescreen TV came yesterday too!

Nope-from what I see, he definitely prefers brunettes

Couldn't you just color your doll's hair

But then there would be an obvious "controversey"

Hmmm-I'll never tell

Do you take this doll everwhere you go-or just to U2 shows-sorry, way too personal

It should have made it into one of their videos-you know, like the pink bunny did in the Stuck video.

Well yesterday morning coming home from the hospital I noticed people lined up outside best buy in braintree and decided to take a chance... I got shut out on Tuesday completely. Not only did I get the very last DVD, but I was able to get the CD as well!!

Here in Connecticut, where they have just opened 2 new Best Buys, BOTH were sold out on the very same day that the dvd went on sale.

Well that's it folks... there's just way too many U2 fans in this world! ..Go us!

Still, even though the DVD is sold out, it's a nice feeling, no? I mean, one expects big blockbuster films like "The Mummy Returns" or "Shrek" to have big sales, but how many expected this type of demand for some 20 year old, washed-up has-been band?


Oh, and I was just joking about the doll thing. However, if I do come across it, I'll be sure to let y'all know (cuz I just know z edge is a perv with that doll).

All sold out here in New York. I've got one on back order from Best Buy.com.

Oh, that reminds me, the employees at Best Buy are a bunch of freckin' retards!!! Just thought I'd ad that as every time I enter that store, my experience is worse than the time before it. "Idea box," you want something for you idea box? Hire people who don't take the "little bus" to work. Perhaps pay them just a little more and maybe you will have employees who actually give a shit! Oh dear, give everybody raises? We can't do that. Of course you can't and that is why I'd rather stick bamboo under my fingernails than shop at your store.

Uh, yeah. I digress. U2 rules!

Looks like it will be the same story here when it is released tomorrow morning, my local HMV in Limerick just rang me, I tried my luck on friday, they had 2 in stock, but wouldn't sell, it woulda been "illegal"...bastards! So they put my name on a copy, but said they were getting major amounts of interest in it, and the price.......£32!!! Which is like $40+! I nearly dropped! The guy in the store couldn't believe it either, said they musta had something seriously special in it, ah well, I'd buy it anyway, such suckers, but still, bit pissed off with that price.

WOW!! I got one of the last DVD's here... there were still 3 more ... but by the time I went to pay, some girl asked if they had anymore, and the sales people were like "NO, the last 5 were taken in a matter of minutes!" I was one of the last 5 who took it! LOL

But yeah, this is so great, that they are selling so damn fast! WOW!

Was at same Best Buy Saturday...they had a little notice in the DVD section next to the Rattle & Hum DVD that they sold out of Eleveation due to unexpected high demand. But I did get the CD, and went back that night before going to the movies and got an extra CD which will make a friend who lives nowhere near a Best Buy happy.

I was at that Best Buy on Sat. too. Perhaps we saw each other (as we both raced for the DVD's) but didn't know the other.

I got a CD at least - would like another... if I have time I may try to snag another copy.

Actually after seeing DB9's Providence photos on here I might have recognized you, but then again with all the happy holiday shopping going on I wasn't paying too much attention to the customers, just looking to get my U2 fix.
Saturday night at about 8:30 they still had a stack of a couple dozen of the CDs at the desk next to the mall entry...only if you asked did they give you one, so its possible they may still ahve some.
