Saturday 15th May 1993
Estádio José Alvalade
MacPhisto: [sings] "Moon River, wider than a mile! I'm crossing you in style, some day. Oh, you dream maker! You heart breaker! Wherever I'm going, you're going my way!"
MacPhisto: "That's a good little tune, now, isn't it? Do you know who I am?"
MacPhisto: "Because I know who you are. And you're very loud. And you speak awfully good English. I prefer to speak Irish, myself. But I do know you – I know you probably better than you know yourself. Anyway... off with the horns, on with the show."
MacPhisto: "Round about this time every night, I like to make a telephone call. Sometimes even to the President of the United States. But not tonight. Tonight I'm going to call a taxi to take me home."
Crowd: [shouts and whistles]
Woman: "Teletáxis – alô, boa noite."
MacPhisto: "Hello, I'd like to order a taxi."
MacPhisto: "Hello, could I order a taxi please?"
MacPhisto: "Hello, d-- do you speak any English? My name is MacPhisto, and I'd like to order a taxi to take me home."
Woman: "Hold a second!"
MacPhisto: "What's your name? ...Hello, who am I speaking to? ...Oh, I know who I'm speaking to."
[waiting music plays]
Woman: [inaudible – sounds like the call is cut off]
Crowd: [laughter and whistles]
MacPhisto: [sadly] "I'm the last pop star... and they've hung up on me. Oh well."
[Ultra Violet begins]
