    New song "The Blackout" is out now. After one listen, it's the best release in easily ten years from them. The chorus is catchy, stadium ready and good four on the floor to move to. This gives me hope for the album. 
    Agree loved the bass on this too 
  • Good, but man oh man, those lyrics are a tad empty.

    totally agree!!  Sometimes You Can't Make It On Your Own gives me chills every time.  A Man And A Women is also sneaky great.

    New single, "You're the Best Thing About Me" is out now. I like it for the most part. When you hear it though, the first run of the chorus each time ends with "About boy" and it either feels incomplete or I'm missing something. It's driving me crazy though because I really dig the changes made to the chorus in the latter parts of the song and it makes the part confusing me stand out more. 
  • PoncierPoncier Posts: 8,144
    The line, which is very clunky, is "the best thing that ever happened a boy", confirmed in the lyric video.

    Bono, would it kill you to add "to" in there?

    Yes!!! Thank you. Memory recall isn't a strong point for me anymore. 
    What a boner of a line. It destroys a good chorus for me. 
  • Love the new tunes - I am hopeful for this album!

    For those who are also paid members of U2.com, the 2017 subscription gift is now available digitally. The physical gift is a reissue of the 4 original singles from The Joshua Tree on 10" (I believe), with a live version from this year's tour as the B-side. That'll be sent out soon, I hope. For now, you can download the MP3's when you go to your account page.
    For those wondering, the live versions are from:
    With Or Without You: Foxborough, June 25th
    I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For: Washington, June 20th
    Where The Streets Have No Name: Louisville, June 16th
    In God's Country: Miami, June 11th
    (Yep, no live versions from Europe, sadly)

    I'll pass on a membership this year.  My favourite u2 gifts have been the double live album from the u2360 tour and that live 10" vinyl from 2 years ago.   Maybe they'll do one from this years tour next year.  4 songs doesn't quite cut it :)

    Man would love to get that Streets from Louisville. Great show on the floor for that one. Was crazy when the FedEx 747 flew over on its descent right during the intro.

    Cool looking vinyl package but a horrible cover.  Not sure I can get by it enough to pull the trigger.
  • JOEJOEJOEJOEJOEJOE Posts: 8,690
    Bit of a rip-off that you need to pre-renew your membership in order to qualify to buy fan club tickets for the new dates.
  • CJ260717CJ260717 Posts: 236
    That is a rip off but I re-upped this weekend.  Hoping the new system will stop the bots and give us some decent seats.  We are supposed to have the presale code texted to us the day of.  Sure that will go smoothly....

    :open_mouth: So if you're a paying fan club member for 2017 you're unable to buy tix that go on sale in 2017? You have to pre-purchase a 2018 membership to qualify? What a bogus cash grab :minus_one:

    Really disappointed in U2 for doing this. What's the point of an annual subscription if it only works on a per tour basis? I know announcing two major tours in one year isn't typical, but come on.

    I'm in tomorrow's presale.  When did you get code?  Did you have a chance to find good seats?  Did the presale sell out?  Very curious...
