Most of the events in the special event tour will be advertisements or things to view, with QR codes and photos allowing for unlocks in-game. Others will encourage participation and some may even include competitions of some sort.

Rewards will vary from event to event. These events will usually hand out 50 Stellar Jades or a Limited Express Ticket. Some of the events even promise the visit of secret special guests.
