The 2003 Licks Tour Opening acts
The following is a list of artists that are expected to
be opening up for the Stones, i.e. warm-up acts:
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.
The postponed shows in Asia will probably be played in November,
Unfortunately it does not seem likely they will do
any shows in South America or Mexico this time.
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!
