If we can pay it back—that would be a success, at least from a business standpoint. In my mind, it'll be a success if we can go to 30 other cities and all those shows sell out. Then it'd be a success. And I think this record can do that for us. It definitely can.

"But if it doesn't, it's not like we're gonna get dropped. We didn't sign that kind of deal."
