"Las Vegas' failure was our fault, no excuses, we didn't rehearse as we need. We chose Las Vegas because of the position, you can't debut in a big city. A rock concert is not like a movie where you can even make corrections after festivals, before it is released. Anyway then everything
went alright: this is rock n' roll. And we don't complain."
- Edge on Popmart, 1998
