I wouldn't be surprised if the tour announcement coincides with the RSD release.

Everybody thinks we’re wrong
But who are they to tell us
Together we can be strong
You know we’ve got to find a way
To get some loving here today

Barricades won’t block our way
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me and we can see

I believe in the kingdom come
Then all the colors will bleed into one
Bleed…but yes I’m still running
You broke the bonds, ya loosed the chains
You carried the cross, you took the shame
Took the blame
Ya know I believe it

If they should ask
Well maybe they’d tell me
What I should say
True colors fly in blue and black
Bruised silken sky and like a burning flag
Colours crash, collide in bloodshot eyes

Even though the new Rattle & Hum vinyl that’s coming out is just a repress of the 2002 European release of the original master, is there any chance that the digital download that comes with it is the 2017 remaster?

Was told no. Have a copy on order will confirm when it arrives.

@Aaron, just curious if you were ever able to confirm whether the download card for the recent Ratttle & Hum vinyl reissue gives the original master or the 2017 remaster?

I got it today and looked at the digital download. 

One thing to remember, the "original" release was often mastered in each country for release, and this results in differences in track timing and even volume as you go country to country. 

This new digital download is not the MFiT remaster from iTunes. The volume is lower, and it has very different track timings and editing decisions (how much crowd noise to leave attached to Van Diemen's land for instance.)

So I then went back through and compared this new digital download to all of the CD pressings I own, including pressings from Canada, France, Germany, Japan, and the USA. It doesn't look like the versions from Canada, USA or Japan. There's enough little differences to make me say those are different. But two of my pressings pop out as very similar, the French and German CDs, both from Universal and both with the label number 842 299-2, which matches with the label number on the vinyl itself, 842 299-1.

Track timings are very similar (off by ms) and the volume of the tracks, and dynamics of the tracks are very similar to these pressings on CD.

I looked at an earlier version from Germany as well for comparison, that CD was closer to the Canadian / USA mastering for timing and volume.  So it looks like when Universal took over in 1999, at some point along the way they released a new set of CDs, likely around 2002 when this vinyl first appeared.  The original vinyl at that time (2002) had claimed to be remastered from the original tapes, so there may have been a bit of tweaking, but it is not listed in the credits, and likely wasn't done by the band. 

This new download is definitely not the mfit version. It most closely matches CDs from Europe pressed by Universal after 1990, which carry a similar catalog number. The vinyl itself appears to be a faithful replica of the vinyl that was first issued in 2002 as well.

Thanks for posting those wonderful images.  Pretty cool!  I know it's not a statue . . . . . it's a more of a sculpture carved from granite.  But this is the kind of thing that should be erected in all the US states that were part of the Confederacy.  Instead, those states have, for over 100 years, erected statues of Confederate soldiers and leaders and it's an embarrassment to the United States.  Statues/sculptures are not erected to record history.  They are erected to celebrate people.  We should not be celebrating people who were willing to fight and die to preserve the morally repugnant institution of slavery.
