- Due to scheduling conflicts the Bristow, Virginia show was rescheduled to September 6.
- During Clarkson's set in the show in Clarkston, the microphones went out just before "Walk Away". Clarkson and her band did not realize this until about one minute into the number. Clarkson laughed off the situation and stated that this was the first time this happened to her in eleven years. The band continued playing the song which was followed by a short intermission. After the technical difficulties were fixed, Clarkson again performed "Walk Away" and continued the remainder of her set without any issue.
- The concert in George was cancelled due to high wind and rain.
On June 4, 2013, it was announced that the Maryland Heights, Burgettstown, Mansfield, Holmdel, Wantagh, Clarkston, Austin, The Woodlands, Denver, Irvine and Los Angeles show were sold out.
