    Good luck if you want you use the Park n Ride from Menlyn - we used it for Linkin Park and it was an absolute mess... Absolutly no organisation - 3 people were tasked to manage the hundreds of people trying to get on the busses, and 2 of them thought they'd rather stand under a tree chatting. NO organised queing, NO-ONE checking people as they got onto the bus or even ATTEMPTING to create any form of order... It ended up as a large crowd of people rushing every bus that pulled up! Ridiculous!!!

      brionyl.french - 2012-11-30 10:44

      Did you complain to Big Concerts?

    well the storms happening today it shows God is not happy with gaga being in south africa!!! pray it gets so bad that all concerts get cancelled so our generation to come and current generation will not be influenced by her satanic music!!!!!!!!!

      george.frangs - 2012-11-30 13:25

      So by that logic, you're blaming Gaga for the little girl in Bloem who was raped with a snake, too? And I guess it was her influence that murdered the Marikana miners and it keeps murdering farmers? You're so wise...

  • tasneem.basardien - 2012-11-30 12:56

    LMAO! sorry, but all this "she is a devil" and "god is angry at her being here thats why the wind is blowing" crap is cracking me up. please dont be so gullible. even if she is a "satanist", its all just for publicity. lol
