  • this has to be it. But I do look forward to the next reissue of Achtung.

    They should stop 2nd reissues. I get Joshua Tree to a degree, but not 2nd servings of already reissued albums like Achtung. Move on in the catalog!

    The top 5 shows I've ever been too!

    No. I don't think anyone has - even the folks that have been continual long standing members are still waiting.

    As far as I know I haven't received anything. What are we supposed to get? Last gift I got were the posters.

    I don't think this years gift has been announced yet. A show from the 1987 Tour would be nice. I suspect this years gift will be a paper product, as last years was vinyl.

    The one due to me as a result of joining....not sure if it is mailed upon joining, or if everyone gets them at the same time.

    Did you select one of the existing available gifts from the past 2 years (set of lithographs or Another Time Another Place vinyl) or the "2017 Gift"?
    if you chose the 2017 gift, it hasn't been announced what it is yet let alone when it'll be sent. (Think Pearl Jam Christmas single timeline.)
    If you chose one of the others, it should have been sent right when you subscribed.

    Sweet Jesus - that is a very COOL gift!

    One I don't mind waiting for.
  • Tim SimmonsTim Simmons Posts: 2,573
    Kinda cool, but kinda meh, the A sides are gonna be on the box set. So you're basically buying 4 live tracks on vinyl. 

    I'll probably buy someones set on ebay for cheap like the 2x10" live set. 


  • CJ260717CJ260717 Posts: 228

    Nope. We bought the membership for something other than a free gift that we didn’t know what it would be.  I’m not buying them.  They are a gift.

    And members might not get the box set.  So these are unexpected 45s.  Hard not to be happy.  Yes you can buy them on ebay, but I like how I got mine.

    I’m starting to see U2 doing really cool things for their members.  And a lot of vinyl.  There are figuring out what fans want.  But that’s not really news for this band.

    thanks for the heads up norm
    usually i never have to "redeem".... they just send me their annual gift whenever
    their fan clubs gifts for the last 8+ years have all been great. no complaints and especially having presale access to those less expensive GA tickets for all their shows is what keeps me paying year after year after year. worth every penny. those tickets are golden

    I am a recent member too and I haven't received my Another Time, Another Place- Double vinyl either.  I sent an email but haven't got a response.  Maybe thinking they will ship it with the 2017 Gift.

    I think if you are a recent member, you chose whether you wanted the Another Time Another Place, the lithographs or the 2017 gift when you subscribed, you get one of them, not multiple items.
    If you were a member last year you could have chosen 1 of the existing options and upon renewal this year opt for the 2017 gift.
    Basically one gift per annual subscription/renewal.

    This was the option which I choose.  Still maybe thinking they will deliver at the same time.

    Oh, you spent extra and got 2 gifts. Most likely they'll deliver both together. Though there's no reason for them to not have shipped the Another Time Another Place right away. Just Live Nation being Live Nation and saving a few bucks.

    Anyone else feeling the pain of credit card entry?

    Holy f**k.

    Ive been told they're delaying the entire show an hour because everybody is standing outside.

    I knew this was a cumbersome, bad idea.

  • chittychitty Posts: 344
    Fuck man I pray you're right. I was at the door an hour and half ago and they said wrong gate. Since when is there specific gates?
    we heard Mumford but don't anymore from outside so I pray you are right on the delay??


  • chittychitty Posts: 344
    Nope outside hearing the whole fucking show. 
    Worst concert experience ever. I was here at 6:15 for Mumford at 730. It's 815 and still not in.
