Jewel的的第六张录音室专辑《Goodbye Alice in Wonderland》定於5月2日发行，因此在这次联合巡演中，Jewel主要是为这张个人新专辑进行宣传。而Rob Thomas仍将继续宣传他去年已经获得了白金销量的首张个人专辑《. . . Something to Be》，这张专辑曾在去年成功获得Billboard 200专辑榜的冠军。
作为2003年的《0304》之后的最新作品，这张《Goodbye Alice in Wonderland》由Jewel和绿日乐队(Green Day)的制作人罗伯·卡瓦罗(Rob Cavallo)合作完成。Jewel在新专辑中尝试了多种音乐风格，从乡村小调《Stephenville, TX》，到欢快的流行歌曲《Satellite》，再到到民谣风味的开场曲《Again and Again》等等。值得一提的是，Jewel的这张专辑中的13首歌均为现场录制，使整张专辑看起来更像一场音乐会。在接受採访时，Jewel说：“如果可以的话，我会在这次巡演中把这张专辑中的歌曲从头到尾唱一遍。”
As a story, Jewel’s origin is impossible to beat: on her way up, the singer/songwriter lived in a van on the West Coast, struggling to find an entrance to a career as a professional musician.

As a story, Jewel’s origin is impossible to beat: on her way up, the singer/songwriter lived in a van on the West Coast, struggling to find an entrance to a career as a professional musician. This hardscrabble tale, only enhanced by her Alaskan upbringing, stood in direct contrast to the sweet, gentle hits “Who Will Save Your Soul,” “You Were Meant for Me,” and “Foolish Games” from her 1995 debut Pieces of You, songs that never suggested a tough background. Nevertheless, Jewel’s sensitive side and blue-collar beginnings served her well over the years: once her books of poetry started to fade and her pop makeover fizzled, she was able to capitalize on her backstory and refashion herself as a modern country singer.
Jewel Kilcher is a native of Homer, Alaska, her family relocating after her 1974 birth in Payson, UT. Jewel began singing at an early age, performing at tourist attractions in Homer, and after her parents’ divorce, she stayed with her father, performing with him as he toured the country. As a teenager, she attended Interlochen Fine Arts Academy in Michigan, which is where she made her first stabs at songwriting. Once she graduated Interlochen, she moved to San Diego to be with her mother, and after working for a while, she decided to pursue music as a career. She ditched creature comforts and moved into her van, attempting to get gigs wherever she could, eventually landing a regular spot at the Innerchange in Pacific Beach. Soon she built up a loyal following, which translated to a contract with Atlantic Records, who released the live-sounding Pieces of You in early 1995.
Pieces of You was not an immediate hit, but Jewel and Atlantic worked it steadily, with the singer/songwriter touring the country and the label releasing single versions that eventually caught hold over a year after the album’s release, beginning with “Who Will Save Your Soul.” “You Were Meant for Me” and “Foolish Games” followed over the course of 1996, helping send Pieces of You to an astonishing 12-times-platinum, making it one of the best-selling debuts of all time. Its success allowed Jewel to pursue whatever she wanted, beginning with Night Without Armor, a collection of her poetry. This was a rest stop on the way to her sophomore set, Spirit, a string-heavy sentimental record. Although it did not sell as well as Pieces of You, that was perhaps an unfair comparison, given the phenomenon of the debut; it still performed well, largely thanks to the single “Hands.”
Jewel followed Spirit with the seasonal Joy: A Holiday Collection for Christmas 1999, while Chasing Down the Dawn — a spoken word album featuring unabridged selections from the book of the same name — appeared in the fall of 2000.
This Way appeared one year later and featured such standout singles as "Standing Still"; it also hinted at Jewel's growing fondness for dance music, as a remixed version of "Serve the Ego" wound up topping the American dance/club charts in 2002. Even so, fans and critics were shocked when the singer's next release, 0304, turned out to be a slick dance-pop album. Just as unexpected was Jewel's decision to allow the Schick company to use her album's hit single, "Intuition," for an advertising campaign introducing a new razor. Her new image didn't last long, however, and Goodbye Alice in Wonderland — released in May 2006 — marked a return to the warm sound of the singer's earlier work. Although it debuted in the Billboard Top Ten, the album failed to go platinum, and marked the end of Jewel's association with Atlantic Records. Working with producer John Rich of Big & Rich, Jewel subsequently refashioned herself as a country singer for 2008's Perfectly Clear, which debuted atop the country albums charts. It was followed in 2010 by the similarly successful (and dutifully countrified) Sweet and Wild.
