As many times as I have seen The Claw being built, it still gets me all excited. Even if it's nowhere near me!

That is one big stadium.

I just love the fact that no one even mentions that they're playing to 100,000+ people. It's just what the band expect now. I love the size of this band almost as much as the music.

And I think South Africa will get one surprise. Just one.

If I can have just one surprize... It would be ACROBAT! I have already made my banner/poster and I will be in the front. Even just a snippet would make my year!!

Progress, Baby Progress! This stadium (FNB Stadium, Johannesburg) Seats 97 000 ( excluding the field). So, the total will be way over 100 000! I guess around 105 000.
In Cape Town they will be playing to 72 000+!

Hi Pilgrim - how early are you gonna be at the Stadium? How early do you need to be there to get to the front?

I've seen pictures of the claw on many different stadiums, but this is the first time that claw actually looks almost tiny. That stadium must be HHUUUUUUUUGGGGEEEE IRL.
