We just signed an additional 3 years there. I’d love to see us performing throughout South America and we’d love to be able to have the chance to go to the Middle East and to perform in Duabi. We’d also love to go to Africa as well. AM: Clearly, we know you’ve been a powerhouse in the music business but how did this translate to real estate?
