The Butterfly Package - AHFOD Live Album/Movie

Recommended Posts

Sooooooo. I ordered and received today the limited edition of the Butterfly Package Lithograph. This was according to the store on the website meant to be

 

'A strictly limited edition collectible individually numbered (1/500) lithograph'

So imagine my dismay when I receive it today. No number anyway telling me which of the 500 mine is. I have emailed Live Nation to ask why this is but am I being optimistic in expecting a sensible reply??

I also got it... mine is fine i have number 40...

Lucky you! I got my friend in the US to call Live Nation for me as I live in the UK and she informs me that after 20 minutes and 3 people later, the last being a supervisor, that as mine was dispatched from the UK they have no control over what is sent out. REALLY??? They will however send me another, at no cost and I do not have to return the first one, but cannot guarantee if this will be numbered either. If number 2 is not numbered I can either apply for my money back or ask for number 3. But if 1 and 2 are not numbered then it is highly unlikely that number 3 would be any different - I could end up with a whole bunch of them in that event! So as you have number 40 I am now left wondering how many they are actually managing the issue of the 500. All I want is one with a number and some sort of certificate to confirm authenticity - not so much to ask for I would suggest. Where was yours shipped from as a matter of interest? Is it just the UK getting it wrong?

Again I can notice some mismatching between what Chris is actually doing and what Chris is actually singing. Why so floppy editing?

My thoughts exactly !

I live in Austria and it was also shipped from UK...

I haven't watched the clip yet, but I don't care for super flashy editing either. I honestly just want a regular concert filmed in one place as is, in HD/4K quality.

Holy shit the visuals! But damn the editing, the longest shot must be what? 3 seconds? Lots of visual effects on top of it as well... I just want to enjoy the scenes, but before your eyes register them it's cut to another shot. It's great, but tiring to watch!

I saw the clip but can't believe how much my eyes hurt and how dizzy I am in fact after seeing it. Though the boys killed it and the performance itself is marvellous, the editing is not. Too flashy, the individual shots were shown for a very short time and were often overlapping. Too many effects at once. If the edit had been carried out better, I wouldn't be so critical of it...

So nobody is hearing that weird noise at 3:02 ?

 

Am I loosing my mind? :joy:

 

I checked on my phone and on my laptop.

 

I recorded a small piece of it by holding my phone next to my laptop (so quality is not great but I can hear it :p)

I've listened to it few times but I have no idea what noise I should be supposed to hear. Could you describe it? :D

Okay thank you for that, I will hope then that number 2 is numbered. Just out of interest where was the number and did you get a certificate of authenticity?

No.It's lower right. It was written on it with a ballpoint pen.

The band must think their fans are really dumb to not notice the crappy editing.

 

This and this whole Los Unidades thing, and the lip syncing thing on Clocks.

I thought editing was ok, I could at least keep up with it myself. There may have been one too many rapid shots for my liking, but I think Whitecross is trying to add to the carnivalic excitement of the opening hit.

The Live in Buenos Airies version crowd noise kinda drowns moments out a little, but I love how the song ends with the intro to Yellow.

I'm pretty confident that is just Chris saying 'think' but more like a sharp 'ffffink'

It sounds like the shutter of a camera, when you take a picture.

 

It is right before the "think" and to me it sounds like it doesn't belong there.

No, I’m driving crazy from live Nation

I really hope Coldplay will finally gonna replace them in some day (I wish for it since 2006!)

I send them an email and asked them what’s going on with the pre ordered of the gold package

And I got this answer:

Hello,

 

Thank you for choosing Live Nation Merchandise. We are still expecting to receive these items in our warehouse on or around Dec. 7. Once we receive the items in your order they will be processed and shipped as soon as possible. I apologize for the delay and thank you for your patience.

 

If you have any further questions or concerns, feel free to contact us.

 

Sincerely,

 

Paige

Live Nation Merchandise Customer Service

 

So I asked them if there’s any chance that I’ll get in on the 7.12

And then I got this answer for them:

Hi,

 

Thank you for contacting the Live Nation. I am very sorry, we are experiencing a delay in getting your order shipped. Our apologies while we work to get this resolved as quickly as possible. We have refunded your shipping for the inconvenience.

 

If you have any further questions or comments, feel free to contact us.

 

Sincerely,

 

Forrest

I think that he cancel my order :mad::eek:

Good news that it is in HD at least on iTunes but still a poor substitute for a Blu-ray release which would offer lossless surround sound plus much higher bit rate for the visuals. The fact there is no HD (or 4k UHD) release is astounding given that you would expect the band and management company would like product released in the best possible formats.

 

For what it's worth I have written to the record company and the Coldplay store to ask if a future release is likely. The more pressure we put on for this the more chance there is of a rethink (I hope!)

Would be nice. I don't have iTunes so unfortunately will have to become a pirate for a day to get the HD version.

 

I hate doing things like that but I did buy the CD/DVD and LP so I feel like I deserve to watch it in HD quality.

Same, on the scale of pirating this would be minor. If there was a higher quality Butterfly Package I would have ordered it instantly!
