  1. Hey.

    I was just wondering if you guys had any information on The Johannesburg U2 concert dvd? I have heard from various sources, newspapers included, that there will be a dvd of the concert made available but when I asked Big Concerts about it, they said they doubted it would be released.

    Can you please let me know what you guys know about this.
    I would love to get my hands on this dvd in any way possible to relieve this amazing experience. Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks so much…
    -Nicara (Durban, South Africa)

    • How awesome would that be!? To be honest though Nicara we’ve also only heard and seen the rumours, nothing definitive or verifiable at all. Which papers are reporting it? Bearing in mind that U2 related articles in the newspapers recently have been a little questionable to say the least!

      I see that DSTV are doing a live AUDIO stream broadcast of the Cape Town concert, so it could be possible that they/MNet have cameras’ at the show as well. Perhaps they are filming for a television broadcast later? And maybe that broadcast will eventually get released on DVD? Lots of perhapses and maybes in the mix here though.

      Be assured that if we hear or see anything more reliable we’ll post the info here first!

      • Hi Greg

        Thanks so much for such a quick response.

        I totally get what you’re saying about the reliability of the papers. The article that stated that a dvd would be released was the one on the front page of The Sunday Times.

        Yes, I did here about the audio stream from the Cape Town show – should be great to listen in on.

        I really do hope we’d be able to get a copy of the show though, even if it is just from a television broadcast – but any info of an actual dvd would be great when you get it.

        Thanks again, and hope you have great day…

  2. Anyone know how much the t-shits and caps are that are for sale, please
    thank you

    • Hi Jolene

      T-shirts I saw listed at R200 each. Caps no idea, sorry. I was still way back in the line at the merch stand when I gave up, but saw a couple of other people mention that the shirt quality was very good. Also, they were using those wireless speedpoint terminals at Joburg, but they kept failing more than working – cell signal around the stadium was not the best. It is definitely advisable to take sufficient cash with you!

    • Shirts – R200
      Caps – R150

      We also did not get at JHB concert because of the long queues. My cousin is going today to CT concert early to get for us.

  3. Hi,
    I have Vip parking for U2 cape town but I am wondering how on earth to actually get to the stadium with all the roads closed around the area. Do we just show metro cops / security the parking ticket to get access? Anyone know how this is going to work?
    Spoke to BC on this and they weren’t reallly sure themselves.

    • Hi Scuba

      That’s pretty much how it worked in Joburg – show your fancy VIP parking ticket to the coppers at the barricades and they should let you through okay.

      Enjoy the show VIP!! 🙂

  4. Hi,

    Does anyone know where I can get the Johannesburg T-Shirt for the concert from now? My boyfriend actually bought one, and it got stolen off the washing line. 🙁 It is his birthday at the end of the month and I would like to replace it as a surprise. Any clues? I think it was specific to JHB.

    Hayley

    • Hi Hayley

      First off let me say that you are a good woman! He better be appreciative of the mission you’ve set yourself up for!

      Almost 18 months since the concert, I fear you are going to struggle to find a replacement… Maybe there is a kind BlaBlanian out there who hears your plea??

      You could try contacting the local merchandise company who were responsible for the U2 stuff in SA – a company called The Greek Merchant. It’s a long shot, but maybe if you tell them your story they may manage to find something in their back storeroom.

      Here’s some contact details:
      YIORGOS SPANOUDIS
      CEO – Operations & Enquiries
      info@thegreekmerchant.com

      SIYANDA GULWA
      Warehouse & Event Merchandiser
      siya@thegreekmerchant.com

      RICO ANDRADE
      Event Production Manager
      rico@thegreekmerchant.com

      Try Yiorgos first – he is the Greek Merchant after all.

      Please let us know what happens, and good hunting!
