IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: A PROBLEM WITH SOME EUROPEAN ORDERS
Several people have reported problems encountered when placing their order for the bonus DVD (the EMI CD/DVD is not yet available to pre-order) from our UK & Europe store.
If you have difficulties after clicking to add the DVD, please click CHECKOUT on the left of the page. You should then see the items you wanted to order, along with details of postage costs, and beneath this you’ll see a form for you to enter your address and payment details. This should solve the problem.
If you got past this stage, then your order has been received.
From today, you will be able to pre-order your copy of the limited edition ‘On An Island’ CD/DVD set, or just the DVD if you already have a copy of the album. Please be sure to use the appropriate store, UK & Europe or North America.
Please note that you will not receive either of these items immediately. They will be shipped the day before they are released and not before. (We know that seems very obvious to most people, but someone is bound to ask…)
Copies of the DVD as a stand-alone item are limited in supply. However, as we previously assured you, we have taken active steps to ensure that anyone who already has a copy of the album – and who only wishes to purchase the bonus DVD as a result – will not miss out.
There is a strict limit of one DVD per customer.
Anyone who tries to order more than one may find themselves with nothing at all. This is because, once all the orders are in, we will be contacting those who ordered more than one and will ask them to order again – this time ordering just the one item, as was clearly stated.
By this time, of course, the limited supply could be long gone, so we can’t stress this enough: To avoid disappointment, please only order one copy of the DVD.
It may seem like an odd strategy, but those people who have sensed an opportunity to try to profit from this limited release could very well end up with egg on their faces, which is never a bad thing. So, the moral of the story is simply: don’t be greedy.
There’s a chat for the ‘Blog Irregulars’ this evening. Doors opened at 5PM (UK time). Please note that you will need the password to get in. The chatroom will be open to everyone on Tuesday.
Thank you all for your comments about the chatroom, which are always very useful to us.
There’s also a new poll today, so please let us know where in the world you are. Surprisingly, the result of our last poll indicated that 79% of visitors are male. We’d be interested to see which continent is best represented.
That’s all for another week, but we hope you have a very good weekend.
Don’t forget that, if you’re in the States, the UK Music Hall of Fame ceremony is on VH1 next Saturday, not this Saturday. We’ll remind you next week.
You can, however, read David’s induction speech over at the Stuff & Nonsense page.
