So… before you get swept away and brainwashed by the trillions of reviewers currently dissing the glorious days of television overdrive and shopping overload, have a look at these sketches for the Popmart tour. And you’ll have to agree, Popmart was cool. The screen. The bowler hat. The brolly. The tight t-shirts. The lemon. Ok, maybe not the lemon. We remember Popmart for its overwhelming humanity – only barely hidden behind the glitter. For the psychokiller madness of ‘Miami’, and the desperation of ‘Please’. We think reviewers were too busy at the bar to notice. [ via U2 Vlaanderen ]
