Help me: Which concert did he do the finger snaps/orgasm joke?

Orgers, I'm trying to remember at which show Prince asks the crowd to be quiet and snap their fingers real fast, then he asks, "You know what that is? Orgasm!" or maybe he says "Climax."

My memory tells me it was Revolution-era, maybe the Syracuse 85 video? Google is giving me nothing.

Thank you for easing my brain.

Purple Rain... It is on the DVD from the deluxe set. I think it wad part of "how come u don't call me anymore?"

You were right....He did in the Purple Rain Syracuse Concert.I believe He said it before he performed "Do Me Baby"

He said Do You believe in Love? then this song's for you

It was after "Do Me, Baby", which was the song after the first set of songs, and that damn "Yankee Doodle" thing with Wendy & Brownmark. It was basically what was the piano segment. Even near the end of the tour, he played snips of things like "Raspberry Beret" or "The Ladder". But the finger snapping thing was just him being cheeky and a reason to say "orgasm". It was usually before a short bit of a rockabilly version of "Let's Pretend We're Married", then he'd drop into "International Lover" for like one line, then run off stage before he went into his long diatribes about God, etc, which led into "Computer Blue".

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Syracuse, just before The Revolution propels
"Let's Pretend We're married" into Boogie wonderland, firing on all cylinders.
You gotta love their out-of-batteries shtick. Tricky stuff.
