The O2 Arena
MacPhisto: [sings] "Even the greatest stars... discover themself... in the looking glass..." [approaches tablet computer 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?"
MacPhisto: [half-sings] "MacPhisto's back! Tell a friend! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!"
Crowd: [laughter, cheers and applause]
MacPhisto: "I do love Halloween, don't you?"
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..."
MacPhisto: "...NATO... the EU..."
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."
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!"
