Belfast, Northern Ireland

The SSE 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]

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: "What are you looking at, Belfast?  Haven't you ever seen a politician before?" [evil laugh]

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "Ohh, my little Lagansiders. MacPhisto's devils are taking over, right across the globe." [evil chuckle] "My kinda people. Like... The Donald."

Crowd: [whoops and boos]

MacPhisto: "Making America hate again!" [laughs] "My little Filipino pretty boy, Rodrigo Duterte." [laughs] "BANG!"

Crowd: [laughter and shrieks]

MacPhisto: [chuckles] "Charming." [chuckles] "Even today, this very election day... or as we call it in Brazil, Beelzebub Bossa Nova!" [dances and laughs evilly]

Crowd: [whoops]

MacPhisto: "200 million people about to have their carnival turned into a military parade, by a man by the name of... Captain Bossa Nova." [dances and laughs evilly] "Bolsonaro – don't forget the name. So many new names. But just one face... mine."

Crowd: [cheers and applause]

MacPhisto: "And remember, Belfast... 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!"
