"Automatic" was first played during the 1999 Tour. Later it was a featured number during Prince's 1986 Parade tour. The song was part of a mini-1999 medley consisting of a short instrumental segment of "Lady Cab Driver", "Automatic", and a very brief "D.M.S.R.". The song reappeared in 2002 at some aftershows in a medley with the Graffiti Bridge song "Shake!".
