The 2002-2003 World Tour started officially in Boston on September 3, 2002. After touring USA & Canada from September through November, and then in January 2003, they will go to the Far East and Australia in February, then Europe next summer, and probably finish off with a few shows on the U.S. East Coast in September 2003. Unfortunately it does not seem likely they will do any shows in South America or Mexico this time.

Important! How to read this page:
This is an up to date list of concerts by The Rolling Stones, to be held during the period 2002-2003. It is based on extensive work, research and experience. Those concerts marked CONFIRMED are officially confirmed. Those marked RUMOURED may happen, but details are still not confirmed. Also, they may never happen. PROBABLY mean the date is confirmed by insiders, but not officially yet. POSTPONED means the show is delayed, and will be re-scheduled to another date. CANCELLED means the show has been cancelled, and there will NOT be another date at that place. Don't pay for expensive travel until concerts are confirmed, and please note that even confirmed concerts may change. This list is supplied by the IORR fan club to fans, for convenient planning of your 2002-2003 life as a Stones fan!

How to get tickets
The Official Rolling Stones Fan Club will probably offer special access to tickets for Europe. See the official Stones site for the official fan club, competitions, tickets and more.

Ticket prices
Ticket prices in Europe are expected to be around Euro 60-90, same as $60-$90. This is cheaper than the ticket prices in USA, typically $90 - $350.

Please check out the new How to get tickets page, made especially for this tour. These pages will be updated once more information is available about tickets in Europe.

Also, for your general information, please check out the now old How To Get Tickets pages of the 1999 No Security Tour. It should still be valid in general, as a piece of advice.

If you have information, corrections, additions or comments, please send email. Thanks!

As a historic reference, the original "old" rumoured tour dates page as updated last time in the morning of May 7, 2002, before the press conference in New York that day, is kept available here. For the old list of rumoured dates in Europe, as filed per Oct. 10, see the old 2003 tour dates list.
