    I saw this too. Bit odd that Zooropa went 25 years without a vinyl reissue and then got two in the space of six months, but oh well...

    Is this a repress of the previous recent reissues but on coloured vinyl? Or is it something new?

  5. If they were limited editions I may bite, but it doesn't appear to be so.

    Those are really cool. Not sure that I "need" them, but I definitely *want* them.

    I was thinking about the Zooropa lp, but I seriously doubt these are all that limited

    i got this email too. My initial thought was "hell yeah." And then going through checkout these come up to $50 a pop after taxes and really pricey shipping. Turned into "hell no" as i looked at my still sealed copy that I bought off Amazon for 20$ with free shipping.

    thanks for a good laugh. i'm sure they're deliberately vague about pressing details, availability, etc. i bet we'll probably see them in our local shops and amazon too.

    A local shop had the golden "Joshua Tree" for 19,99€ so I had to take it. And the green "Urban Hymns" as well. It's starting to get ridiculous, is it? :biglaugh:

    Zooropa should have been purple - not blue! :realmad:

    That "gold" look is still sealed! :angel:

    But hopefully it will have a shiny "CB" in the deadwax. To be honest that was my main reason for biting. I've got a nice nm UK original but was quite interested in a double vinyl reissue.

    Just opened up the blue Zooropa and noticed it didn't come with a download code card. Anyone else get this yet? Was hoping to get a digital copy of the 2018 remaster.

    I’m chucking away all my non-coloured vinyl now! Ive been stitched up...I can’t even bring myself to play Zooropa now as it’s not blue :(

    I suggest stick to the recent double black vinyl versions. These will be the same. These most recent 2LP pressings are pretty flawless (incl the JT 30th repress of 2007 master). I think coloured vinyl is a gimmick to attract the newbie hipster crowd.
