  • This is Jonathan's first show in Vancouver, as well as his first Canadian show outside of Toronto.
  • As this was a Canadian show, Jonathan and Paul and Storm drank beer brewed by Sleeman Breweries, a Canadian brewery, on stage, much to the delight of one fan.
  • As a preface to Curl, Jonathan admitted that he got the terminology wrong in the lyrics--the song's protagonist is a 'skip' not a 'skipper'. After apologising for that and the anti-Canadian sentiment in the lyrics, he proceeded to emphatically sing 'skip' throughout the song.
  • During the lead-in to Still Alive, an audience member shouted "the cake is a lie," prompting another to retort "the cake is NOT a lie!" Jonathan, as a result, posed the question "Cake: lie, or not?" Since a fan had brought cupcakes for the entire audience, this derailed into audience banter for a short while. Jonathan was handed a cupcake decorated with a companion cube, which he ate on stage despite protesting that it would cause him to sing poorly.
  • During the first chorus of Re: Your Brains the front row of the audience rushed the stage in zombie fashion. Jonathan managed to not crack up until they shrugged and returned to sitting on the floor as the chorus ended.
  • After the first "encore", the crowd continued cheering until Jonathan came out to say that the venue had a curfew for live music and he was not allowed to keep playing. After a minute or so a venue staff member came up to the stage and said something to him, then he performed a final song.
