The Light Me Up tour kicked off in London, England, at the O2 Academy Islington; following these two performances, the band appeared at the V Festival.

In February 2011, the band toured the United States extensively; then, the band set off on a festival-based European summer tour performing at twelve major international music festivals. Some of these festivals included the Download Festival in England and the Rock am Ring and Rock im Park festivals in Germany.

Throughout August 2011, The Pretty Reckless performed in Tokyo and Osaka as part of the Summer Sonic Festival. The band was scheduled to perform at the Soundwave Revolution from September 24, 2011 – October 3, 2011, before the festival series was cancelled. Some of the artists scheduled to play were invited back to Australia to perform in a replacement mini-festival tour called Counter Revolution. The Pretty Reckless were among those artists that decided to return. But they too eventually pulled out of the festival series.

It was confirmed in October 2011 that The Pretty Reckless would perform at Soundwave in 2012.

On July 26, 2011, Taylor Momsen announced via Twitter that The Pretty Reckless would tour Europe alongside Evanescence and Fair To Midland; eventually, a North American leg was announced with The Pretty Reckless and Rival Sons opening for Evanescence.

On February 9, 2012, The Pretty Reckless announced they would play two SideWaves in Sydney and Melbourne, Australia.
