2018 Subscription Thread U2 3D (no not that one)

So this pretty much confirms that R&H30 will be released at Christmas as a stop gap.

Just get this to us by December 31 2018.

Thank you for posting that information.  I clicked on that link and it includes this info:
The ‘Live From The Kingdom Mix’ of When Love Comes To Town - running to nearly 8 minutes -  includes a ‘sermon’ by Little Richard while 'The Hard Metal Dance Club Mix' of God Part II (at almost 7 minutes) samples John Lennon’s voice and includes the recorded words of Martin Luther King. Both of these extended remixes have never previously been commercially available.

When Love Comes To Town [Live From The Kingdom Mix] with a track time of 7:28 was in The Complete U2 digital box set, which I bought from the iTunes Store.  This new release has a track time of 7:52 . . . . . . how different could it be?

It's a different edit. The longer one was released on a promo.

I realize they're reproducing the 3-D Dance Mixes promo release.  But it still seems like a missed opportunity to also release the longer version of Desire (Hollywood Remix) with running time 9:23.

My thoughts exactly.

Just get this to us by December 31 2018.

I think that there's already been a production delay.

I don't understand their current obsession with releasing things exclusively on vinyl.

I further don't understand why they have no interest in, once again, giving me any exclusive musical tracks.  This will be another year of a subscriber gift going directly to a storage shelf to sit until either I sell my collection or I'm dead.

George as a dedicated U2 collector for over 30 years this release and versions/edits slipped me by.

What really irks me about it is that these are three tracks that are already commercially available, minus 25 seconds of one and two minutes of another.  I'd be more okay with it if they really were promo-only mixes, not just promo-only edits.

So as for releasing an R&H-era promo that has something really special?  How about Excerpts from Rattle & Hum?!  Or make me grin ear-to-ear and release the movie-only audio on CD!  But that's dreamland, I suppose.

I think this is an indication that 30R&H is coming.

I wouldn't put money on R&H being released at Christmas myself.
