The price of copper is on the rise, and as long as we have those copper-plated pennies in our monetary system, there will always be a demand for the element. Because of the missing copper, officials had the difficult choice between (A) having the soccer game and canceling the U2 concert or (B) canceling the game in order to make the necessary repairs to the stadium's power generators so U2 can perform on February 13th (Grammy night!). They chose (B), and for good reason: U2's concert at FNB Stadium is expected to draw 98,000 fans, or 4,000 more fans that attended the World Cup Final at the stadium last year. Are no sports safe from the wrath of Bono?
