Around 150 invitations to participate as extras in the video were given out to attendants of the June, 15th 1987 concert. A note with a lipstick trace stamp as well as handwritten info on the shooting date, time and entrance door was distributed to the front row concerts-goers.

Shooting started around 6:00 p.m. and lasted until around 3:00 a.m. with a food break in the middle for which tables were set up. During the break Prince performed a 10 minute drums solo.
