USA Today: Best Buy offering free CD with DVD

From USA TODAY

"Best Buy also is partnering with band U2 on a free song sampler and a 2-week exclusive on a concert DVD. The store also will sponsor broadcasts of the concert on cable's VH-1 and via satellite on DirecTV. The holiday promotions aim to create fun events that
connect with customers, says Mike Linton, senior vice president of strategic marketing."

Anyone know what this CD sampler will include?

Fuck, the cooler's empty!

In NYC metro? There is one in Yonkers on Central Ave, and one in the Palasades Mall
over the Tapanzee. Don't know of any in NYC itself.

A while ago Best Buy had a very cool Sting CD with live versions and remixes that was only available through them, so this could be something interesting.

Maybe it will be the long-awaited recording of Bono dueting with Henry Rollins. It's such a shame they left that of the last album...

How about the songs from Boston omitted from the DVD?

Just a guess

I was at Best Buy this evening, and the sign said that the extra disc is.......

The Best Of 1980-1990 plus B-sides!

Well, most of us already have at least the first disc. I'm interested in finally getting the second one.

The closest I live to a Best Buy is 3 hours away. Anyone interested in picking up a copy for me, I'll repay you, and burn you a copy of any U2 show in my collection.

Can I get this xtra disc by ordering on line?
Or do I have to go to the store itself?

Thanks!

Is this something we're gonna have to wait in line for? Is it like 'the first 100 customers' or something like that? And do they give them to every idiot who walks through the door, whether or not they like U2 or do you have to buy the DVD first?

One more thing, will it be on VHS too?

I heard that there will be 3 songs on the disc...two of them are "Beautiful Day" and "Gone" live from Boston. I forgot what the third song was.
