Christofer Drew of NeverShoutNever hurt his foot badly during the Mansfield, Massachusetts stop of the tour on July 13, 2010. Drew was jumping off of a speaker and landed wrong on his foot.

Drew continued the tour with the injury.

26-year-old Curtis DeForest of Wichita, Kansas died during the Bonner Springs stop of the tour on August 2, 2010.[30] The cause of death is currently unknown but still under investigation by authorities.[30]

Following the Denver stop of the tour on August 8, 2010, Pennywise members Fletcher Dragge and Randy Bradbury were involved in an incident with Alesana on the band's RV.[31] Dragge and Bradbury were both intoxicated and mistakenly entered an empty RV believing it belonged to The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band.[32] Alesana returned to find the men and asked them to leave. A scuffle broke out leading to police using a taser on Dragge and arresting him for assault.[32] Alesana dropped all charges. Fletcher followed suit by issuing an apology while taking full blame for the incident and both sides hold no bad feelings towards each other.[32]
