Las Vegas, Nevada, USA
Bono: "Desire... greed... lust... deceit... vanity – all the essentials for a showman in all his forms. And of course... a licence... to just look in the mirror." [approaches iPad on a stand; his "reflection" is shown on the big screen, with a devilish face superimposed over his own image] "Oh yeah..."
MacPhisto: [admiringly] "Ohhh yeah..."
Crowd: [laughter, cheers and wolf whistles]
MacPhisto: "Ohh. Very revealing! Age... age can bring a spot of bother, no?" [chuckles] "Is there a dermatologist in the house?" [chuckles] "Ohhh... tell them 'MacPhisto's on fire!'"
MacPhisto: "And so will everyone else, with the Iranians on hold to blow up the world." [chuckles] "The truth is DEAD! The truth is dead, and the KKK are out on the streets of Charlottesville without their silly costumes. Who'd have thought?"
MacPhisto: "Oh, Las Vegas. When you don't believe I exist, that's when I do my best work."
MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can feel the enemy! FEEL THE ENEMY!" [raises and waves his arms]
