I thought I’d get out of my comfort zone again today. I’ve decided to go to our very own FNB stadium (the largest stadium in South Africa) and see Bon Jovi in concert. I’m generally not wild about large crowds or concerts. FNB Stadium is our flagship stadium holding about 95,000 people and was the main stadium for the Fifa 2010 World Cup. Hubby is part of the Executive Stadium Management so Moi got special suite tickets and parking in the basement.
We left home early to avoid the traffic. Got to about 10km away from the stadium and hit traffic – it was all bumper to bumper. So we pulled out and went to another off ramp past the stadium and got off there which was much easier. Debating the parking was an epic on its own. It’s fine and well having basement parking but you need to get there first. Anyway, we eventually made our way to the parking and got a bay right outside the door to the lift (perfect!)
Second act was Elvis Blue who is one of my favourite South African artists. Absolutely love his music.
I had a great evening. The show finished at around midnight and I got home at about 1.30am. The traffic getting out of the stadium was an absolute nightmare.
I’m doing this all over again tomorrow night. I am going to see what all the fuss is about and going to see Justin Bieber. (I am going with an open mind.)
