[Desire ends with MacPhisto exclaiming "Ohh, The Edge! Zooropa!"]

MacPhisto: [singing – inaudible]

MacPhisto: "Look what you've done to me. You've made me very famous, and I thank you for that."

Crowd: [cheer]

MacPhisto: "I know you like your pop stars to be exciting, so I bought these."

Crowd: [laughter and cheers]

MacPhisto: "Now look at me, I'm gigantic. Oh, what a night, what a show. Home with the people who love us more than anybody else in the whole world!"

Crowd: [lengthy applause]

MacPhisto: "Home with the people who see through all the trappings and the hype. Home with the people who know the real me. Home with the people who don't see me as a glamorous pop star. Home with the people who call me 'Dad'. I'm going to sleep in my own bed tonight. Shall I give them a telephone call?"

Crowd: "Yeah!"

MacPhisto: "Perhaps I should warn them; I know they're excited to see me, after so long."


MacPhisto: "I'm so tired, hassling people, it's such a bore. This is going to be so exciting!"

Crowd: [laughter]

Jordan Hewson: [answerphone message] "Hellooo!  Nobody's here!  We're going on holidaaayyy!"

Crowd: [laughter]

Jordan Hewson: [message continues] "Daddy, if that's you, we're not coming home until you take your horns off!  Bye-byyyyye!"

Eve Hewson: "Byyye!"

Crowd: [awww / cheers and applause]

[Ultra Violet begins]
