The Rolling Stones were all in Toronto by Tuesday July 16, 2002, with a group of around 50 crew members and assistants, to start rehearsals for the upcoming World Tour.

Initial rehearsals started at the Crescent School in Toronto. On Thursday July 18 the guitar technician Royden "Chuch" Magee was suffering a fatal heart attack during rehearsals, and was taken to Sunnybrook hospital where he was pronounced dead on arrival. The group as well as the rest of the crew was of course all chocked and saddened by the loss of Chuch.

On the following day Friday July 19 they moved out of the Crescent School, and into a new reherarsals location at the CTV studios in the Old Masonic Temple, on Yonge St. The first rehearsals at the new location took place on Monday July 22. For details of the rehearsals see below.

The following is feedback about what they are reheasring. Please do not take this too seriously, because what they rehearse one or two nights may not be played live at all. But as songs get reherased more and more, of course, then the chance is bigger they will do it on tour. Also, please note that these lists are not complete. If you have feedback, reports or comments about the rehearsals please send e-mail to iorr. Thanks!
