A two-disc edition of Roses will be available to purchase on February 13, according to Amazon UK. But don’t get too excited about the bonus material…
The second disc will contain live material recorded during the Reunion Tour in Madrid (Spain) on March 12, 2010, where they played most of their past singles. Tracks are to be confirmed.
This seems like an odd choice for a second disc content, considering the possibilities with more recent material (live stadium versions of “Tomorrow” and “Schizophrenic Playboys”, six non-album tracks recorded for Roses, demos from the 2003 recording sessions, acoustic versions of Roses tracks, etc.).
Live stadium versions of past singles, such as “Dreams”, “Zombie”, “Salvation” and “Promises” to name a few, were already proposed on many CD-singles in the past, as bonus material on their last studio album, Wake Up and Smell the Coffee and their 2002 Greatest Hits, Stars, as well as on a 2010 live compilation, Bualadh Bos, and a 3-disc live album, Live in Paris 2010. The latter was a reissue of a series of limited edition albums proposed to fans after European shows of the Reunion Tour, which also included the Madrid show.
