Well, there are a couple of dance/drama rooms at school that could hold about a hundred people, a fairly large gym, three big ovals, a town hall, and a little stage in the pub. Plus the golf course, surrounding scrub and deli. You see, there is no limit to where they can play. Things may change if 60,000 people suddenly rock up in a town normally populated by 900 people, though.

And your South African geography is shaky, isn't it? Durban is coastal. The cities closest to Botswana that I named are Pretoria and Jo'burg - it would probably be a waste to play both of them, as they are so close together.

Also, isn't Dakar fairly Western-looking and relatively wealthy? I'd have thought U2 might be able to do a gig there, but then again, from what I've read before, most people in Senegal's part of the world aren't interested in the kind of music U2 makes.
Doubt they'd risk it with Kenya but this is kinda moot as they won't touch SSA.

Yeah it's shakey. I was picturing the city right above swaziland...pretoria?

Eh I doubt Senegal. I went with Accra because it is relatively western and wealthy AND english speaking, and centrally located, but honestly it's not gonna happen and it's both money and lack of interest in u2.

guys what if they actually DID Liechtenstein. It's easily accessible from Zurich and Salzburg and Munich/Bavaria, and it's wealthy as all hell.

I would be there of course but I'd expect some of you lot to show up too.

The only problem is that it lacks any remotely viable venue for the band. I would SO be there if they did, though.

Pretty much. Their first US stadium show was Pontiac, Michigan, and in the very early eighties, they hit Grand Rapids. Played in a church there!

Any version with the Gimme Some Truth snippet.

The 21 March 1985, Chicago recording is SENSATIONAL quality, you won't believe it's audience recorded.
