This was in my inbox just now.

Emphasis on the last paragraph is mine.

Renewal Package - 20% off the annual subscription fee plus an

EXCLUSIVE Audio and CD Rom 'U2.Communication'

Dear Eilis,

It is now 12 months since we launched the current version of

12 months that have seen U2 release "How To Dismantle An Atomic Bomb"
and set out on the Vertigo//2005 tour; 12
months in which subscribers have been kept up to date with all things
U2 including exclusive information and unique access.

As your current subscription will soon expire we would like
to introduce our inaugural Re-subscription Package.

All current subscribers will be able to renew their subscriptions
for a further 12 months at a 20% discount on the standard cost of $40.
In addition, all members who renew their subscriptions will
also receive an exclusive CD/CD-ROM double disc set, "U2 Communication".

This package, which will not be available at retail, contains an 8-track
CD featuring songs recorded live during the Vertigo Tour; and a CD-ROM
containing an interactive audio player, an exclusive live video clip from
U2's Vertigo 2005 show at Milan's San Siro stadium, as well as wallpapers
and U2 screen savers using the show's amazing imagery.

As a paid up member of you will continue to receive a 25%
discount on your first purchase at the store and access
to the subscribers site, which features up to the minute stories, interviews
and videos. We will continue to give subscribers exclusive
access to full-length audio and video streams of new U2 songs and performances.
Subscribers can keep in touch with other fans via their own
address and access to the Zootopia boards and regular subscriber

There will not be any ticket guarantees as part of the re-subscription

As we have stated before, the ticket pre sale for Vertigo
2005 was not what we wanted it to be, and once again we can only apologise
for the inconvenience and distress that we know this caused. We continue
to look for fair ways in which we can distribute tickets to our fans on
future tours but any solution will not be tied to this re-subscription.

So...looks like, at least for now, folks south of the equator and in Japan and Mexico are hosed for the fourth leg. :\
