U2 Plays The Joshua Tree’s “Acrobat” For The First Time Live, As Bono Brings Back Mr. MacPhisto

U2 performed “Acrobat” live for the very first time on the opening night of the Experience + Innocence Tour at BOK Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma. And Bono has rightfully brought out early ’90s “Mr. MacPhisto” persona as a statement with what’s going on in the world. “I haven’t seen this guy in quite a while,” he told the crowd. “I’ve been a busy little devil. But you’ve made it all so much easier for me these days. … The truth is dead and the KKK are out on the streets of Charlottesville without their silly costumes. Who would have thought? When you don’t believe that I exist, that’s when I do my best work.”
