Two new members joined the group during the tour – Jason Duffy on drums and Kieran Kiely on keyboards. Jason Duffy joined the band after Caroline Corr announced her pregnancy and was unable to cross the Atlantic Ocean for the North American leg. Caroline was moved to percussion which would be easier for her as the months progressed.
The 26 November 2004 show at the SEG Geneva Arena in Geneva, Switzerland was filmed and released on 13 December 2005. It was titled, "All the Way Home: A History of the Corrs (plus Live in Geneva)". The film contains a documentary on the history of the band along with the full concert made into a fantasy movie from Geneva by Warner Bros. Pictures.
