“Metallica Concert”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2013

Poor poor management overall, long queues for beer and merchandise. Drunk people passed out everywhere and security was rude and unhelpful.

“Bon Jovi concert”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

Place was like a zoo - taxi had to drop you off 1 km away because of all the traffic blockades and no real way to arrange the return trip pick up. Seemingly only 1 way in and out. Staff at stadium overwhelmed and food vendors didnt have a clue about queuing or service. To get ticket entrance sorted once inside was a pillar to post affair. Fodo/deverage prices exhorbitant. Compared to going to sports/concerts in Durban stadiums this was an unpleasant circus.

“Great venue but very badly organised”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

As a venue this stadium is great - Terrific sound quality with easy access to bathrooms and concession stands on most levels. However, events tend to be badly organized and traffic in and out of the venue is a nightmare. Expect to take about 2 hours just to leave the parking lot after a big event.

“We could buy no water at the U2 concert”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

If you like to walk far, just to realise that every time you need the toilet, cool drink / water, food... you have to wait, very long...at the U2 concert (not sure of date), I was dying of thirst! Could not even find water to drink!!

The queues went on and on, even blocking the exits.

“Shoddy organisation by CAF”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

This was the first football game I've ever attended and you'd expect the final of an African Cup of Nations to be organised a bit better after all the practice in 2010. Couldn't get a beer after standing in a surging queue for 40 minutes with rude people constantly pushing in front of you. Awful. Plus the football was worse than watching paint dry.
