I am always sad when U2 announced a nice great album on recordstoreday as I already know that I am not able to get this vinyl. It feels unfair that you only can buy this record in a special shop as this kind of shop is always in a big city far away from my hometown. In the Uk you have 250 shops as stated above but in the Netherlands not more then 10 and only 1 will have this new vinyl. I hope as a long term member and fan that you find other ways to make sure that also people like me can buy this vinyl.

Celebration 2022
I have got three different original seven inch copies of this, looking forward to adding this to my collection. My local independent dealer is fantastic and loves RSD day, Vinyl Vaughan's Guernsey Chanel Islands, might be worth going on line if you struggle to get a copy. Thanks U2ie team.

Pure joy
Last saturday I visited the shop The discomane, in Milan, to order the U2 vinyl. The songs that really changed my life,. A celebration and Party girl...I would never lose this chance! and... I felt like I was 16. The feeling of being in a place where people understand what you feel and share their passions with you. Thanks U2 for being the band of my life.
