"Dressing up as the devil is great. I enjoyed every minute of it. The amazing thing was a woman called Eunice Shriver who set up the Special Olympics - she's one of the Kennedys and an American Irish I suppose - she came down to see us. She's incredibly erudite and she's up on everything, a pretty sharp lady. And she said after the show, 'Y'know, I used to go and see U2 shows and I just saw these kind of angels.' And she said, 'Tonight I saw these devils as well as angels on stage and I think I liked it better. It's a fairer fight.' Macphisto walking through the Vatican. That was great. I really enjoyed that. Walking through the Vatican with my stick thinking, 'One day this could all be mine.'"
- Bono, 1995
