hehe sorry kids
i think its just a silly australian thing
nothing all that exciting, but in all the stores instead of boring posters, they have these big cardboard cubes with the album and single pics around them.
they have about 6 in every shop, so you wouldnt think they'd mind that much if i reserved to have one...

one store said ring back monday, we'll be selling them. they are cardboard for goodness sake!
i dont mind though, id pay for one cause im THAT sad

Hi

I got it too! Since yesterday. I bought it in a music shop in Lille (France). They must have made a mistake, cos it was the only copy available. Unbelievable. The DVD is magic. Contents:
1. History mix (starting with... EVERYTHING YOU KNOW IS WRONG and ending with U2's appearance in The Simpsons (Adam: "Can I come?" Edge: "No" Adam: "Wankers!")) (7'40")
2. DVD Best of: the videos - trailer (2'20")
3. Please live from Helsinki (5'00")
4. Beautiful Day videoclip from Eze-sur-mer

I decided to play it safe and not have to go to multiple stores to look for the one with the bonus DVD. Ordered from CDNow for $18.

They had a BIG box of them in the back of an fye store, but of course, they wouldn't let me buy it until Tuesday. And damn it, I didn't forget to ask if they'll have the cubes here in the states!

not great

Some real flaws in this collection

no 'The Fly'



missing boom-cha in discotheque



really shoddy edit of Ms Sarajevo



im not taking part of bono's Macho-head games in this cheap scheme designed at making a quick million

will buy the dvd videos and maybe the new album (if its any good)

I am very broke this week, with having to pay my damn car registration but I did stop by the local independant music store up from where I work and order in a copy of the limited edition Best Off- I can wait, seeing as though I have heard all of the songs before and I dont have a DVD player too (will have to put some friends through my U2 obsession and borrow a friends) but I must say that I am intrigued to know what the hidden track is

Deadly!

I got mine at 20 past midnight, today There was a midnight launch at HMV Grafton Street. They told us that the band wouldn't be there, but there was going to be a surprise. It was the ZOO TV HEADS!!!!! DEADLY!!! I was there rolling on the floor... LMAO!!! They were so funny! I got my picture taken with "Bono" by a photographer from Reuters, so watch this space. I might get my 15 minutes!


*off to watch the DVD*

Buckleys have it in stock

I held it yesterday...that's a start.

Hub brought home a parcel last night, obviously a CD. I was momentarily thinking , awwww sweet......... momentarily.
He bought himself/us the new Santana CD ( he has bought every album Carlos has released, major Sanatana fan) He is disappointed with this one, no feeling, is it a fecking drum machine?
He shoulda oughta bought U2...larry larry larry!!!

PS: no cubes at Sanity Grafton amanda I asked...and all the Elvis Presley posters are taken too....I asked.
