    The 24 December 1998 (a.m.), Tivoli, Utrecht, the Netherlands performance of the song earned some later notoriety. In the performance Prince stated "I’ve gotta go home y'all... I’ve gotta go back to America. I’ve gotta go get ready for the bomb. Osama bin Laden gettin’ ready to bomb. America... you better watch out... 2001." His comments were widely commented on following the September 11 terrorist attacks in the USA, but were taken out of context.

The "2001" cue was to notify the band to go into the Also Sprach Zarathustra part of the song. Prince clearly believed that Osama bin Laden was planning attacks on the USA, but many conspiracy theorists interpreted the performance to indicate that Prince was aware of specific details of the September 11 terrorist attacks almost three years before they took place, which was clearly false.
