During the first concert, Ross was sick and they had difficulties in the performances. In an interview with The Magazine, Ross told talked about it: "The first bit started off a little slower because I was a little sick, well for me personally. There is always something nice about being sick on the road because you can always look forward to getting better. The tour keeps getting better and better. Every night we will look at our show and look at the weakest section, and we’ll fix it and make it better. As the tour goes on, it gets better. We like to change it up too. Change the set".

He also said that the R5 flees the teen stereotype and plays rock and roll and would be a great choice for the festival Rock in Rio.
