[PHOTOS] U22 Has Arrived

Like U2.com said a week ago, my U22 was on its way. It arrived this afternoon. I didn’t see how it came, it was just on the porch when I went to get the regular ol’ mail. There is a United States Postal Service tracking # on it, but it also says it is from “UPS Mail Innovations.” So, maybe the USPS outsourced it to UPS? Who knows? The return address is Live Nation in Rancho Cordova, CA, but that doesn’t mean mine came from CA. I live in Ohio, btw, and I heard of another Ohioan in my region who got hers today.

Inside a simple cardboard envelope the size of a 12″ vinyl slipcase was the booklet, CDs, and a short note saying “thanks for subscribing” and reminding me of how unique this is because “you, the band’s fans” voted for this.

There are 22 pages of pics inside of the claw in different cities, the band, and of the concert crowds. Some in color and some in B&W. Most pages have a quote from a band member about being on the 360 Tour, and Adam’s liner notes are in the back, where he “talks us through the final tracklisting.” Here are some pics, and the track listing with city and date are below.

    No U22 here in RIchmond, VA yet…but glad to see Zooropa from Baltimore is on it because I was at that show!

    36% 1st leg Europe
    0% 2nd leg N America
    14% 3rd leg Europe
    14% 4th leg Australia
    9% 5th leg Africa
    0% 6th leg S America
    27% 7th leg C America/N America

    Whenever the package arrives, I will be happy to have it. However, it seems odd that two legs were excluded completely, while 23% of the tracks were drawn from a group of 12 shows (Australia & Africa). Is there a difference between recording process used for the shows represented on the album, when compared to the standard nightly recordings the band does?

    Wonderful package, wonderful setlist, wonderful title… IMHO the best U2-present-disc ever, since “Melon” in 1995… The best song is surely “Bad”, real magic in Rome ;-)

    Looovvee U22! My only complaint – I hate CDs anymore, I wish we could’ve gotten it digital. Every CD I’ve ever gotten from U2.com has had some skipping tracks. I’ve gotten other CDs elsewhere that didn’t do that, so not sure what the deal is.

    Did anybody elses ‘ U22 skip, especially Disc 2 / moment of surrender?

    Still Love It!
