The email I got from amazon was just plain weird. Making it sound like a good thing :huh:

Hello,

We have good news! One of your pre-ordered items is now eligible for release date delivery and has been upgraded at no additional charge. Your new delivery estimate is:
  
  "R40 Live [DVD] [2015]"
    Estimated arrival date: December 04 2015

So it's good because I now get it on the day of release...but the day of release is 2 weeks later...nice "upgrade" :eyeroll:

f**k those amazon bastards. I'll give some record stores a try tomorrow, and keep my fingers crossed that one of them has it in the shelves. I want to have my viewing party tomorrow, since I already have the fridge mounted with booze. :hail:

I'm glad I have cancelled my amazon uk order, because, after receiving an email like that, i would have spent a fortune for a bottle of Dom Perignon 1952....

Hey it's the sentiment that really matters. The WANT you to feel loved when you're actually getting shafted.

Bend over and love it...'cause ain't shit you can do about it. At least, I think that's what they're saying.

I've also cancelled my amazon order. Hoping some record store will have it in stock on 12/4 (unless it shows up on iTunes before that date). It's way much more fun to buy an actual copy in a store than order one virtually through amazon or iTunes.

That's the spirit. Support your local stores. :cheers:

Same thing happened here in Holland about 9 days ago as well :facepalm:  That's why I've ordered the DVD from Amazon.co.uk. I really hope the UK release date remains 11/20... :wacko:

**Just checked and the delivery date for my order is 11/24.

Must strictly be a non-US thing.  Mine's already shipped from Amazon, destined to reach here tomorrow.

It's really weird... Why postpone the DVD release over here? I wonder is it because they might fear sales will fall flat because of the new Adele album that's going to be released tomorrow?

for those in canada or toronto, i don't notice any listings on best buy or hmv canada sites. do they just not put it up until the day of the release? i avoided ordering through amazon because i figured it might come a couple days late and i thought i could just pick it up at one of those stores tomorrow.

Sounds like the Best Buy motto these days.



I doubt anyone would want to do this since they would be paying an extra $10 for the flashlight, but I'd swap the VIP tour picks from a few years ago that I have (the ones with the magnetic base) for the flashlight if anyone is so inclined.

You get it on the day of release as opposed to them shipping it out from their warehouse on release day. It is a good thing, even if it is an added wait. 2 weeks instead of 4.

It seems like they're only releasing the DVD in the places that they toured it :(

On the bright side...we can look forward to long debates on whether this counts as a November album, or a December album :lol:

What's the problem? It's not like it's a new studio album.
