Don't you love how specific they are about the time and where on the site to go?

At 9pm SA time, go to u2.com and click on the link. Is it really so difficult?

Just had an email saying U2.com are streaming the show from Cape Town tonight live!

Fingers crossed it works!

WHAT WHAT WHAT - I never receive any emails from them ***GRRR***

Could you please either post it here or PM it to me - okay?

Dear Monica,

Big news U2.com subscribers - tonight's going to be a bit special !

People across Africa can listen in to a live audio stream of the band's show in Cape Town - and on U2.com we'll be hosting the live audio for our subscribers across the world.

"The band had a great night in Johannesburg," says Paul McGuinness, "And I'm sure we'll deliver another big show in Cape Town".

Don't miss it!

Wherever you are on the planet, log in to the U2.com subscription site this evening (South African time) and listen in live to the show from Cape Town.

best wishes,
The U2.com Team.
The key sentence in this announcement is in bold up above.  Hate to be a downer, but the only reason this is being done is because a South African company is streaming it, so U2.com is hosting the stream.  This doesn’t mean that they’ll be streaming concerts from now on.
It’s just like the fan cam picture Matt posted to the @U2 blog; it’s a South African company that created that picture; U2.com is just hosting it.  I’m not giving U2.com any credit for this.

U2.com could've easily chosen not to host any of this.   I agree that something is better than nothing.  I don't expect they will stream every concert from now on, and maybe they shouldn't.  How many of us would really listen to every concert if they were all streamed online?

Hopefully you'll be able to get the stream...
