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+!

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.

Maymay, it is the same stadium where the World cup soccer  2010 opening and closing matches were.

That is SA for you...If its not politics that get involved, then its crime.. But hey, its still a beautiful country and its what We make of it!.
For all we know Bono will invite Freddie Nyathela over and sort this out over a cup of tea! (Never even heard of him!)
I fully believe that everything will go smoothly and that everyone attending will have a Magnificent time.
Luckily this SARA is situated in JHB and not in Cape Town.
