10/17 - The Rio Theater, Santa Cruz, CA
Tonight's show featured a rare solo rendition of "Beautiful Sorta". Jason Isbell again joined in for the encore. Fans have said Ryan seemed a little more relaxed at this show and played for close to 3 hours. At one point in the show he talked about the song - "My Love for You is Real" and said he doesn't like it, thought it had potential but never was happy with the finished product.

10/18 - Crest Theater, Sacramento, CA
Sadly the last show of the tour with Jason Isbell, who again sat in for the encore. Ryan dedicated a special metal improv at the end of the show to Isbell. Dressed in a black hood, two women in cloaks and black metal makeup walked slowly across the stage with candles. "Chains of Love" was requested by Mandy Moore who texted him the request while on stage. According to a fan who went to all of the shows, this was easily the best.

10/20 - The Shedd, Eugene, OR
This show receieved tons of positive reviews among fans. Ryan was hilarious, played some some parts of some unreleased metal songs he was writing, and also did a rare performance of "Cry on Demand".
