These shows in July-August, 2008 were first Bad Chopper shows since 2004. CJ Ramone played personally few other shows between 2004-2008.

Bad Chopper played in these South American shows of the Bad Chopper songs for example Diabla, Sick Of It, Do It To Me and Ain't No Criminal. And of the Ramones songs (or songs that Ramones covered) for example Wart Hog, Punishment Fits The Crime, The Crusher, Main Man, Got Alot To Say, My Back Pages and Cretin Family.

Tour was organised by my friend Mariano Asch from Argentina. Here are few comments by him:
- You can say the concerts were all a big success. CJ Ramone did in Buenos Aires a special one-off encore with musicians from Expulsados and Cadena Perpetua and after the last song Do You Wanna Dance? CJ stage dived into the crowd ! Everybody went bananas, commented Mariano Asch.
