World Cup 2010 Concert

June 11, 2010 by Victoria Rowe 2 Comments

The South Africa 2010 party got under way last night, it was a joyous, colourful and truly African spirit. The Concert was held in Orland Stadium in Soweto, Johannesburg, which is the home of iconic club side Orlando Pirates, the concert featured a host of stars including Shakira, Alicia Keys, K’Naan and the Black Eyed Peas.

The countdown clock introducing the three-hour extravaganza finally hit zero and with it came a cacophonous roar as seemingly thousands of South Africa flags were lifted, creating an ocean of colour among the estimated 30,000 in attendance. Joining the countless Rainbow Nation colours were a broad cross-section of national flags representing every corner of the globe, as the many visitors in attendance took the opportunity to enjoy Africa’s impressive ability to turn on a party.

Someone please stop the horns! I tried to give the World Cup a chance, but I’d even turn off the Superbowl if there was the same annoying background noise.

The Vuvuzela, just when you though kazoos were the most annoying “musical instruments”
