The O2 Arena

MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself... in the looking glass..." [approaches iPad on a stand; sees a devilish face superimposed over his own image] "Even the greatest stars..."

MacPhisto: [half-sings] "Guess who's back?  Back again?"

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: [half-sings] "MacPhisto's back!  Tell a friend!" [evil laugh]

Crowd: [laughter, cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "I do love Halloween, don't you?"

Crowd: "Yes!"

MacPhisto: "Halloween... in the Hellfire Club – those were the days. And they're coming back. I used to say... in London town, when I was out and about... that I wouldn't be a member of a club I couldn't burn down." [chuckles]

Crowd: [laughter and whoops]

MacPhisto: "And I must say, I've been a busy little devil. Burning down all kinds of clubs. The United Nations..."

Crowd: [laughter]

MacPhisto: "...NATO... the EU..."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "...and strangely, here in this Disunited Kingdom, BOTH Labour AND the Conservative parties, all in flames – bravo!  Come on!"

Crowd: [whistles and applause]

MacPhisto: "You see... it's when you don't believe I exist – that's when I do... my best work."

[Acrobat begins]

MacPhisto: "Don't believe what you hear. Don't believe what you see. If you just close your eyes... you can FEEL THE ENEMYYY!  Haa!"
