POPMART Leg 3: 1997, North America


Load In - Slane Castle

Slept in as best I could, until Bruce came round to join me on the ride into Slane at 5pm. They sent a stretch limo for us which was suitably absurd. Bruce insisted on getting out and walking the last 100 metres to avoid having to face the inevitable taunting of stage crew.

From 8 - 10pm we got all the spot operators in place to get an idea of what all this might all look like on the night. I was very pleased, it's all very promising. We were programming late again, but it was exciting to see it coming together - the PiGi projectors looked magnificent all over the front surfaces of the stage.
