'Africa's Future'

'U2 in Johannesburg - the real greatest show on earth.'

'U2 give Cape Town a concert to remember...'

A wave of great reviews pouring in following the U2360° shows in Johannesburg and Cape Town. And on our tour pages, fans who were at the show are adding their own reports and photos.

In a striking editorial the paper says that 'A fresh chapter is opening in Africa's history, a new continent is emerging...'
