A pathetically small stadium! I remember checking it out on WorldStadiums.com, it holds only a few thousand.

It'll be the fucking Minlaton Renaissance!

Oh, I thought they may have played Ann Arbor before, but I guess it's a little small.

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.
Yeah, neither Kenya nor Tanzania nor anywhere around there's going to happen. Good point with Accra though.

Yeah, Pretoria (and neighbouring Jo'burg) are the big cities in the middle of the country. Pretoria is the capital.

I love that you included Iron Knob. I've considered that as a Superthread location before. Can't remember if I've ever been there though, just passed a lot on the way past Whyalla.

I'm looking forward to U2 paying me for seeing them in my backyard.

I'm familiar with it due to the railway around that part of the world. There's a number of Iron places - Iron Duke and Iron Baron, I think? But Iron Knob has always stuck in my head and I've considered it for Superthreads too. Great minds, etc. Then there's Yorkey's Knob in Queensland, a suburb of Cairns, where my aunt and uncle lived for a bit.
