How come evry record shop in the UK today has a copy of Cosmos Rocks, yet QOL can't deliver due to the Channel Tunnel fire.... Come on, get real, what a total cock up as usual

Isn't that just only for the mainland of Europe?

The exclusive tour edition is more like a cash-in rip off that I'll be putting straight on eBay in order to rebuy the one with the DVD - about the only thing in this release worth any money.

Got mine as well, apparently the tickets are being sent separately.

Right about it being a rip off though.

...so what's special about the Album Club version?
(I'm still waiting for it, just today got a mail from QOL saying that it has been dispatched TODAY)

Let me guess:
It is the standard jewel case cd (not the realy nice looking book-style gatefold digipack with big booklet), shoved inside a thin paper sleeve without any sides and the poster is just a 4-way fold out of the album cover art???

Half a DVD that's available in full anyway is worth the money?

Mate, I ordered SLIJ last Tuesday from HMV Japan and it arrived on Friday. Do yourself a favour and buy that instead of a teaser for it (especially if the short version doesn't have surround sound).

Has anyone in the States received their "Album Club" edition of 'The Cosmos Rocks?'

I think the point is people were informed of a "special" edition of the CD only available from QOL - in fact it turns out, this special edition is worse than one available from HMV and a few quid more.

Right!
AND you can buy tickets from them before they go on general sale. In case of shows in smaller venues a real fan REALY does not want to take the risk!
(As many people on the last tour ended up without tickets for a show they wanted to go to becuase it said "sold out" within 10 minutes after tickets went on general sale and their turn was after 11!)

Holy cow.... I hope they arrive, I sent an angury message to QOL last night as I still don't have their version of the album or my tickets...
