First off, if you don't know who MacPhisto is, how did
you get here?? During the Zoo TV/Zooropa tour, MacPhisto was Bono's character
for the last part of the show. According to the FAQ, he was used during
the European tour because they thought he would be easier for them to understand
than the evangelist character of Mirrorball Man. MacPhisto is obviously
the devil and if not, then an evil character (big suprise). Bono comes
onstage in a gold sparkled suit with matching platform shoes, pasty face
makeup with dark eyes and red horns. Bono has said the character is a cross
between Mephistopheles (the devil from Faust, go get the book), Gavin Friday
and about 500 hundred other people.
And um....thats about it.
