The word audience, in the sense of a group of assembled spectators or listeners at a public event such as a play, film, concert, or meeting, is used generally in South Africa, while spectators is reserved for sporting events and listeners for radio. (In Afrikaans the term used, gehoor , also means something along the lines of "to have listened", despite the fact one is talking of audio-visual performance forms and media).
