Just before the band comes together to begin rehearsals, we see Charles in a phone interview addressing the upcoming tour. He is asked what it's like to be in the same room with the rest of the band after so long. His answer is, "It's like we never took a break." What is then shown appears to be a very tense situation. On the stage of an empty theater bits and pieces of songs are played, and there is discussion about keys and chord progressions, but there is also a tension, so heavy and thick you can feel it through your television screen.
As the first concert date nears, it seems things are getting better. Before the first show, which Charles refers to as a practice show, he calms Kim's nerves, telling her to just go out and have fun. Joe confides to the camera they are all being supportive of Kim's struggle with sobriety and they are all insisting there is to be no alcohol backstage. In the very next clip Dave admits to the other three he took a Valium with a glass of wine because he couldn't play unless he came down – a situation that would first be ignored before it become a real problem and finally dealt with mid-tour after the band was forced to leave the stage because Dave was too messed up to play.
Following that first show, it is Charles who is concerned when Kim is soaking her hands in the ice water the drinks are chilling in, and it is he who offers her concern and support when he sees her blistered fingers. For a brief time I was left wondering if the animosity between these two was nothing more than hype or maybe the wounds were healed by time and distance. As time and the tour progresses the closeness shown in the first shows fades away. Kim and her sister travel between shows in an RV which follows the tour bus transporting the other three. They are not seen socializing or communicating with each other except for shortly before and shortly after they appear on stage.
