So Cruel - Live
I am really looking forward to hearing the live version of "So Cruel" since U2 has only played it live four times. It is probably one of U2's most underrated songs.
Vi prego Aggiungete.un Concerto live dello ZooTv Tour del 1992/93 Sarebbe la cosa piu giusta da fare Noi fan ce lo meritiamo Grazie.
None from Achtung Baby tour?
No tracks from the actual Achtung Baby Tour? The Miami show was stellar! Too bad.
Non vedo l'ora!
Le 4 tracce già arrivate le ho praticamente imparate a memoria. Non vedo l'ora che arrivi per averlo tra le mani,ma mi accontenterei di tutti i download il prima possibile
Dublin 93
The Dublin 1993 show that was broadcast on radio is still one of the best sounding live performances I have ever heard. I love the songs from Achtung Baby and am excited every time I hear one of them at a U2 show. Thanks for making this. I wish U2 would release more of their live performances.
No tracks from the 1992 tour?!?
Just a pity there’s no tracks from the actual U2 Achtung Baby 1992 tour
Finally they are giving us a taste. I'll never be upset with a compilation of Achtung Baby tracks, but I truly wish they would have all been from the ZooTV tour, except for Acrobat for obvious reasons. But maybe that's why they went this route. Since they couldn't do the entire thing from ZooTV performances then just pull from all the tours since it's release. But man, hearing a well mastered recording of Trying to Throw Your Arms Around the World with young Bono voice is just magnificent. Hoping these start shipping soon.
Would love a vault series!
This looks like a fantastic release. Would love to see a vinyl release of it too! As others have said - it would be great to see the vault open up more often. How about a vinyl release every 6-12 months like Pearl Jam’s vault series.
Stuff to get us through the dark days
Aaah, something to look forward to. A bandaid for the wound of not doing a 30th anniversary tour. If Joshua Tree deserved it, AB certainly does so too.
Tanto aprovechado
Me alegra ver registros inéditos en esta recopilación, pero habiendo tanto material archivado, siempre se termina eligiendo lo mismo (ZS, TTTYAATW, MW).
finally good news. It brings back old memories. Looking forward to.
Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
Hello U2 + community, I’m yet to download the new songs as I’m driving to a beautiful rainforest creek with my husband and youngest son for. an afternoon hike and swim. I’m looking forward to hearing the songs and receiving the much anticipated resubscribers gift. It would be great to see U2 return to Oz, and Queensland in particular. Eg. we have a great convention centre (ASM Global Pty Ltd) under renovation in Cairns…hint, hint!!! We are also the gateway to The Great Barrier Reef and The Pacific. Love, Metta
This was my era so having waited ages for this it’s pretty disappointing. Only 4 tracks from Zoo TV and even 1 of those is already available via a radio broadcast. There must be so much Zoo TV recordings in the vault but these days the band just seem to be focused on releasing material that’s been tweaked to death and production heavy.
Across The Decades
So special to me, I remember being at the Dublin gig in 93. It was kind of the end of my youth in many respects with friends that have long parted ways and moved on or out of my life. One of those times in your life when one chapter closes and a new one begins It was in the summer just before I'd meet my wife to be. We celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary next year - I'm just hoping there might be some U2 activity to go with it! Then 2018, Belfast - a smaller venue, but there you are, so many years later and the best band ever is still knockin' tunes 'out of the park' to their fans. Great gig. I've been fortunate to see the band a few times - even NYC in 2015 - hard to beat an Irish crowd (north or south of the boarder) though. Regardless of time, we know how to party when U2 are in town. Here's to the future!
Why are these tracks not from the actual Achtung baby tour? It seems only 4 are. I do thank you for releasing these.
Top *****
Great sound!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cannot wait to get the physical copy on my hands ( even though I don´t have a CD player anymore) ;-)
Can wait to have my cd I hope you guys go on your for this era Zoo Tv
AB! Forever
Another terrific Live release! thank you so much! I can't wait to have the complete cd in my hands! I was there in 1993 in Naples. Peace and Love! ☮❤ Luigi
D10S es argentino
Solo Buenos Aires repite canciones del listado, por algo será. Y fui a los dos shows!!
Great! Thank You!
I was there at the Belfast shows (2018 & 2015). As a person who is from the city, I'm very happy to see yet another live recording being released from Belfast (Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses). The Blackout was another live recording released on 2019's subscriber gift, U2 Live Songs of iNNOCENCE + eXPERIENCE which was great! The live version of WGRYWH on the 2018 tour I loved too. I'm loving the recent subscriber gifts over the past few years, especially with the CD, photo booklet releases. I'd welcome more of this. With that said, I'm hoping that we can also get to see the U2 vault open up a bit more in future releases (maybe more complete live concerts for example?) which would be fantastic. As a side note and to give credit, it's positive to hear that manufacturing is now taking place in both Europe and North America which I assume will benefit the fans better. I'm really looking forward to this release hearing all of the tracks and I hope to see U2 return to Ireland's second city (Belfast) once again in the future.
Finally some news... The gift looks great. Hope to get this gift without taxes. Hoping that it's producing is in Europe.
Wao Thrills......
ZOO TV from Sydney
Would be nice for a track or 2 from the actual Sydney show which I was at. I'm not complaining tho, love this album :) :) :)
