U2 CAN ROCK ON THE FAN WALK

by Big Concerts on Tuesday, 08 February 2011 at 07:43

Cape Town, February 8th:- WHEN the fans begin to stream towards Cape Town Stadium for the much-anticipated U2 360° Tour Concert at Cape Town Stadium on February 18th, the 2.4km Fan Walk will be again activated with entertainment - this time as an integral part of the City’s rock music experience.

Sponsored by 8.ta, SA’s newest mobile network, the U2 Fan Walk will present an exciting journey for fans and locals alike and will include large print murals depicting the band’s illustrious history as well as iconic elements from some of their best-selling albums.

 

Apart from murals set along the entire route, other elements will include a stage with a screen back-drop at St Andrews Square setting the scene for DJs and a VJ while rock bands will appear from a roof-top on Somerset Rd, emulating U2’s video shot in LA of the song “Streets With No Name”.

Additional elements along the route will include sky-beams, cyber stilt-walkers, a marching band, mist-tunnels and activations from KFM.

 

“While it is one of the most enjoyable and safe ways of reaching Cape Town Stadium from the City we believe the Fan Walk will also be an experience on its own, providing a unique sense of the City along with entertainment elements paying homage to U2,” says Lesley de Reuck, Director of the Cape Town Stadium.

The Fan Walk also winds its way through some of Cape Town’s most vibrant neighborhoods with numerous restaurants and nightlife spots ready to cater for fans before and after the concert, creating an exciting and memorable experience in Africa’s most inimitable city.

 

Presented by Big Concerts and produced by Live Nation, the U2 360° Tour concert on February 18th starts promptly at 7.30pm with gates opening at Cape Town Stadium at 4:30pm. The Fan Walk will activate at around 3.30pm.

 

While Waterkant Street will be partially pedestrianized, still allowing cars to use these routes, Somerset Road and the inbound section of Main Road Green Point will be fully pedestrianised from 4.30pm on February 18th, allowing fans a great rocking time on the Fan Walk. Full details of road closures is obtainable at www.capetown.gov.za or at 0800 65 64 63.
