The tour was announced at a performance art press conference on May 5, 2008.
Tickets for Waits' summer shows were limited to two per person but, in an effort to beat ticket touts, a valid I.D. (passport or driving license) matching the name on the ticket was required to gain entry. Any concert-goer who did not have a valid I.D. or was found to be in possession of a ticket that had been resold – electronic scanners were employed – was not allowed in and did not get a refund.
As of July 22 Tom Waits band consisted of the following:
- Vincent Henry - woodwinds
- Casey Waits - drums
- Omar Torrez - guitar/banjo
- Patrick Warren - keyboard
- Seth Ford-Young - bass
- Sullivan Waits - clarinet/conga
