So would this crowd have been able to see U2 if it wasn't for the SWC?  Bookmark this for the SWC naysayers thread?

Nope.
There's no way in hell the old stadium was big enough.

without the new stadiums U2 would never have come here.

Thanks for the reply. Was going to try and take my 7D with but left it. Had to make do with my iPhone 4. Might look at a Canon G11 or G12 would have been perfect. Next time.


Thanks Shaun

@ Payback....Camera was a Big Issue...have 2 SLR's and was Dying to take one.

Wifey said NOOOOO and I settled on the SONY HX1

Saw 2 Guys Fighting tooth and nail with security ,trying to convince them that the SLR's are not professional Camera's.

It's actually such a JOKE as some of the new Mik and Druk camera offer up to 30x Optical ZOOM with Full HD Video

Was a Great night...

Thanks for comments

Howzit Guys

Thought that I would post a few of my pic's here, just to give a different angle of the stage and view from where we were sitting.

I used a decent but not professional camera & after a while I figured out that it was giving better pic's on "Sports" mode, without a flash, considering the distance we were away from the stage and the amount of interference over the distance. (People jumping, etc.)

What a concert! The wife and I parked at Century City parking, walked into taxi, got dropped at the station, waited 10 mins for train, got off in Cape Town. Decided to do the fan walk, stopped had dinner and drinks, chilled and watched the fans and got into the "gees". Proceeded to stadium, ques moved quickly, entered stadium at 8.45pm. (Weren't keen on watching local bands).

Same story going home: Bus to Cape Town Station, walked into train, got out of train into Taxi and then dropped off in parking lot. Lekka, Lekka!

Enjoy!
