U2.com Unveils New Site & Subscriber Benefits

Posted: November 25, 2014
By: Sherry Lawrence

U2.com's 2014/2015 fan club subscriber benefits have been revealed, along with a site redesign. Subscribers can select either North Side Story or a gatefold sleeve double 10" vinyl featuring a live set from 1980. Subscribers will also be able to download the vinyl content. According to U2.com:

Recorded in a small club, with just a few hundred passionate fans, this vintage live set captures a time when the band were taking songs like The Electric Co, I Will Follow and Out of Control on the road across Ireland and the UK . 

There was no internet or digital downloading in 1980 - even the CD was still to arrive - the band's debut LP Boy was released on vinyl. In keeping with that history, and in tribute to the return of vinyl, as a U2.com subscriber you'll receive this limited edition live set on two 10" vinyl albums in a bespoke gatefold sleeve. (In keeping with 2014/15, downloads will accompany the vinyl) 

The other news many have been waiting to hear is that subscriptions will come with early access to concert tickets. The site states, "As well as this limited edition gift, subscribers to U2.com gain access to distinct content on the site and are first in line for ticket presales when the band head out on tour."

Further details on the vinyl track list and ticket information are still being worked out. The vinyl gift will be shipped in spring 2015.
