2011-02-18 - Cape Town, South Africa - Cape Town Stadium


Performance notes: The concert was broadcast by local radio stations throughout Africa and by U2.com to a worldwide audience of subscribers. I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For and Stand By Me were performed with Yvonne Chaka Chaka aka "Princess of Africa". City Of Blinding Lights had a new, extended intro featuring pre-recorded samples of Fez-Being Born (never played live) and Zooropa. This was the first concert ever held at Cape Town Stadium, although U2 and many other artists performed at the previous stadium on the site, Green Point Stadium (which was demolished in 2007).

Great audio
Recording: "U2.com subscribers broadcast (AAC)" - 4.5 stars


Too many non-U2 fans, just there for the spectacle


Amazing performance in the Mother City. Stunning venue, energetic performance. My introduction of Live U2 to my two sons. #Legacy
