Kelly Schaefer had to give up playing live guitar due to suffering from tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome. Rand Burkey was supposed to take part in the reunion tour, but had to cancel due to legal troubles so two new guitarists had to be brought in for the gigs, with Schaefer doing only the vocals for those shows.
