Critical reception[edit]

The tour received mostly positive reviews commenting on the crowd atomosphere and their vocal abilities.

GenQ stated "...the girls were on stage for 1 ½ hours of entertainment in every sense of the word".[22]

The Courier Mail gave a positive review saying "There was plenty of sass, not to mention skin-tight sequined pants, multiple costume changes and lashings of red lipstick, but the girls' big voices were the main attraction" as well as commenting on their performance of 'Heavily Broken' stating "Their emotion-laden ballad Heavily Broken, dedicated to the victims of Victoria's Bushfires, was the only thing that could draw silence from the crowd" and ended it with a comment on the shows family friendly nature saying "If the applause was any indicator, Saturday night's crowd - mums and dads included - were proud of their local girls done good".[23]

Adelaide Now reviewed their performance at the Thebarton Theatre and commented on their stage presence saying "With a string quartet brought in for some songs, back-up dancers for others, The Veronicas delivered a varied and energy filled set"[24]
