    And no KZN again... thanks for nothing AGAIN Big Concerts

      Poor attendance in the past is the reason no major acts go to KZN. You only have yourselves to blame. The Duran Duran concert was cancelled nationwide last year due to poor Durban sales and the overseas agents would not allow that show to be dropped, so the whole tour was cancelled. Not that I particularly like Duran Duran, this just shows how your (in)actions have consequences. Thanks KZN. I will be watching Sting from the front seats in Johannesburg. :-)

      I've heard that argument a 100 times but fact is Duran Duran are has-beens and have been here before so no-one wanted to see them anyway. Strange how Neil Diamond virtually sold out the Mose Mabidha stadium earlier this year, so saying KZN'ers don'r support is a falacy and a cop-out. The solution is simple, hire smaller venues in KZN and the concerts will sell-out.

    The best concert since Harare 1988!!! I'll be there.

    Sting and Bono only come here to have their picture taken with Mandela, and show the world just how uber-liberal they are, whilst making obscene amounts of money by recycling their old 80's crap songs, from when they used to be almost relevant. Sod off Sting, isnt there an amazonian rainforest somewhere that needs saving? And a photo opportunity to have your picture taken with the native aboriginals???

      go and listen to justin bebber or the soundtrack of noddy
