North American release only? Europe? Is Black Friday RSD even done in Europe?

That Bullmoose site mentioned 10,000 copies but now I'm not so sure of their info--

Another Wide Awake fiasco? Oh boy  ::) Another field day for the Ebay gougers if these are numbered...


Edit--just read u2tour.de front page--they say 10,000 with 6500 for N. America.

Hi slaneman --

The 10,000 with 6500 for North America came from me. A local supplier told me that and it was later confirmed by a second online shop. That's what stores who are being offered a chance to order are being told for quantities.  Bullmoose also listed 10000 copies. "Wide Awake in Europe" was limited to 5000 copies.  "Wide Awake" also had a brand new, never before released song on it in "Mercy".  While "Ordinary Love" is new, it's being released earlier that week on CD on the soundtrack most likely.  That leaves the alternate version of "Breathe".  Not sure that's enough to get the attention of the U2 fan bases.

I expect this one to land up on eBay fairly quickly.  And probably with inflated prices.  But with twice as many copies, and possibly less interest in it once people realize the song is available on CD, it may be easier to obtain.

Looks like Amazon has moved the release date of the soundtrack to 12/10. The score is still scheduled for 11/25.

How many times a day are you looking at that Amazon listing?!

Well, it's 10:55 PM on Friday (November 1, 2013) over here in the Mountain Time zone (US) . . . . . and I just checked U2.com hoping to hear a full version of Ordinary Love, but I don't see available yet.  I'm not interested in hearing a snippet of a new track.  I will happily wait for the full version.

I heard that the video isn't ready to go yet, and that's what will be debuted in full.  Maybe this week coming up.  Not the first time they widely missed a date on a video.  Remember "Boots"?  It seemed to take forever to come out...

It also appears that they've removed U2 as a listed artist on the amazon.com site.  :(

It means the b-side from the single is missing from the soundtrack album.

Thanks for clarifying.
