Original post below for awesome imagery and info…
That’s right U2 and MyCityByNight fans!
We heard through a little birdy (not twitter this time) that they announcing it on Monday the 18th October at 9am! So that is tomorrow to some of you and today to others.
That is the image posted on Big Concerts Facebook page (HERE). Click it I say 😀
Using modified 360° Tour imagery, it states that an announcement will be made at 9am local time this coming Monday, 18 October, and that the unnamed band will visit in February 2011. If that isn’t enough to tip you off that the band in question is U2, then just check out the “buzz feed” at bottom right. It explicitly describes the 360° Tour’s staging, and how many other bands do you know that were formed at Mount Temple in 1976, released their debut album in 1980, and went on to be inducted into the Rock Hall Of Fame in 2005? That’s right, there aren’t any.
Now doesn’t all that imagery just look alike?
The rumored date in February is the 18th. That’s hopefully the the day Cape Town gets U2 again (Unless they don’t announce it or they cancel, which would suck)!
The Irish super group, currently on their 360 Degree Tour, are reportedly set to play stadium shows in Cape Town and Johannesburg – marking the first time the full band have performed in the country since 1998.
The concert spectacle features a 360-degree stage — allowing the audience to sit on all sides — which makes use of a four-legged 50-metre tall structure called “The Claw”. Holding the record as the largest concert stage structure it holds the speaker system and a cylindrical video screen that hovers above the band, or can be lowered to behind the four performers.
Despite the tour being the most expensive ever to run — with 120 trucks needed to transport equipment and staging between shows — it helped U2 top Billboard magazine’s Top 40 Money Makers list with earnings of R872-million in 2009 from touring, record sales, and other royalties.
How mental is that stage! Check the other pics at the bottom.
The band last performed in South Africa on their PopMart tour 12 years ago.
So lets hold thumbs!
