After rehearsals in the middle of March 2010, Mark started the Get Lucky tour on 8th April 2010 in Seattle. Two new band members were added: Tim O'Brien and Mike McGoldrick. Tim only played on the USA and Canadian leg of the tour and was replaced by John McCusker on the European leg. Early in the tour, Mark got a serious back injury which made it almost impossible for him to stand up during the shows. Instead of cancelling the tour, Mark decided to sit on a stool for the rest of the tour. Phil Cunningham played accordion on the Get Lucky album and gratefully accepted Mark's offer to come and play a few tunes at the show in Glasgow.

On this tour, audio soundboard recordings were made by Simfy Live which could be bought as a souvenir on USB stick right after the shows or as digital downloads on their website. When the downloads came available after the Get Lucky tour, Simfy released 50 shows, including just one (out of six) from the Royal Albert Hall, 30th May 2010.  In June 2014, these soundboards came available again for download, this time by Bleecker Street Entertainment. Surprisingly, now four extra recordings were added, all from the Royal Albert Hall: 31st May, 1st June, 2nd June and 3rd June. For some reason, only the last show from London was not released.
