On the second night in Verona, MacPhisto speaks the line "Come on baby light my fire" (guh!) during Desire, as it's the anniversary of Jim Morrison's death. (He also lists some other members of the 27 Club - "Brian Jones, Janis...") He makes his first attempt to call the Pope, to offer him some ZooTV equipment for his next world tour, but sadly he can't get through!

The video of Desire and the speech and phone call is You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login. (Be warned: first time I saw this video, I was so mesmerised by those hips that I couldn't think straight and completely forgot what important task I'd been just about to do.)

Asking again just in case - does anyone have a recording of the soundcheck from Rome on 5th July 1993? It apparently consists of:

Satellite Of Love
Zoo Station intro (multiple times)
Zoo Station (full song)
The Fly
Even Better Than The Real Thing
Mysterious Ways
One / Unchained Melody
Until The End Of The World
New Year's Day
Van Diemen's Land
All I Want Is You (first verse only)
Bullet The Blue Sky
Running To Stand Still
Where The Streets Have No Name
Desire
MacPhisto speech

The second and final Swiss show took place on 30th June, this time visiting Basel. I love MacPhisto's little speech about the boat trip on Lake Geneva (his "friends" including Naomi Campbell and the various support acts - Macnas, Stereo MCs and The Velvet Underground). For some odd reason there is no phone call tonight, even though he says he's going to call a taxi (to take him from Switzerland to Las Vegas... hmmm!) - maybe there was a strict curfew and they were overrunning or something?? Poor devil gets booed for wanting to go home, and is visibly dismayed by it!

Today's concert anniversary is the first of two nights in Rome. This is one of the first MacPhisto performances I ever heard outside of the Sydney video, as I bought the bootleg on cassette during a visit to Dublin, haha!

"With a red guitar player on fire"! Edge was on fire even then. :D
Desire is pretty great - I always liked the way he goes "I'm burning baby, yeah... oh yeah... oh yeah". And follows it with a snippet of You Make Me Feel So Young. Oh yeah! Some fabulous rolled R's for "Rrrrroma!" too.

I also really love hearing MacPhisto speak Italian! "Ciao, miei cari bambini." <3

He tries again to get hold of the Pope, this time to find out which football team he supports. ;D (The way he says "Alright then... I shaaall" amuses me. I find myself saying it sometimes.) It's very endearing how the lady tries so hard to help him out even though she's struggling a bit with the language! I think he may have had more luck trying Castel Gandolfo rather than Castel Sant'Angelo. ;) Still, he did get there eventually, it seems...

If anyone here speaks Italian, I would appreciate some help with transcribing the guy who initially answers the phone - not sure what he's mumbling in the background when MacPhisto starts asking about the Pope.

Register or Login. The girl pulled up on stage for this concert is extraordinarily lucky, by the way!! She comes on during With Or Without You (57:52), and when it gets to the guitar solo, he actually lifts her right up with her legs wrapped around him! Then they dance and hug for the rest of the song ("We'll shine like stars in the silver light / We'll shine like stars, it'll be alright / Just hold on, hold on, baby hold on tight"). And carry on dancing into Love Is Blindness! Then rather than send her away, he lies her down on the stage and crouches over her for ages - I don't even quite know *what* is going on there! He stands up again to sing the next verse, but then lies down *with* her for the entire guitar solo. They are lost from view for some time, before he pulls her into a sitting position and sings the last few lines to her. Wow - what an experience that must have been...!

Great thread! I love Macphisto too. My daughter has been gathering clothing items when she finds them to dress up as him one of these days.   :)
Many years ago I saw an amazing homemade Macphisto doll on ebay. I bought it of course.  ;D I can post a pic if anyone wants to see him.

Here are some of my Macphisto gifs.  ;)

That is awesome.  ;D And glittery. Perfect.

I don't know who made these (there's a Mirrorball Man also.) Wish I knew! Made from Ken dolls. There's so much attention to detail. I thought they were amazing.

Second night in Rome on 7th July, and there is a rather amusing incident in the middle of Desire! Originally I just had the audio bootleg and wondered what on *earth* was going on, and then I downloaded the video and all became clear! (It's not yet on YouTube, alas, and the file is too big for me to share.) MacPhisto finds himself a dance partner in the form of a, um, lifesize inflatable doll which he spots in the crowd ("She looks like my kind of girl!"), and the rest of the band just have to improvise while it slowly deflates in his arms ("It happens to all my girlfriends!", LOL). I love how he says "Do sit down..." while lying his limp lady friend flat on the stage with her legs flopping over the edge. ;D

"Signor MacPhisto" phones the corrupt former Prime Minister, Bettino Craxi (for whom the crowd have a friendly chant prepared!) at the hotel where he lives. The receptionist guy is really uncooperative and rude at first, demanding to know where MacPhisto is from before he'll let him say anything else. ("My country of origin is not of interest to you, young man" - hehe!) He does finally get through to Craxi's secretary to leave a message though. :D The audio of the speech / phone call and Ultra Violet is You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login.
