The Licks Tour was a worldwide concert tour undertaken by The Rolling Stones during 2002 and 2003, in support of their 40th anniversary compilation album Forty Licks. The tour grossed over $300 million, becoming the second highest grossing tour at that time, behind their own Voodoo Lounge Tour of 1994-1995.<ref>"Stones tour licks up $300m". BBC News. Retrieved 22 November 2014</ref>

The itinerary continued the Rolling Stones' practice of mixing theatre, arena, and stadium venues. With little new music to promote, set lists were dynamic and featured a total of 80 different songs.<ref name = setlistfm>{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=web }}</ref>

Planned dates in East Asia and the final date of the tour were cancelled in response to the SARS outbreak of 2002-2003. Additionally, because Toronto, Canada was also affected, the Rolling Stones headlined the Molson Canadian Rocks for Toronto concert on 30 July 2003 to help the city recover from the effects of the epidemic. It was attended by an estimated 490,000 people.<ref>http://www.allmusic.com/album/toronto-rocks-mw0001365705</ref> Finally, on 7–9 November 2003, the band played its first ever concerts in Hong Kong, as part of the Harbour Fest celebration.<ref>http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/3188644.stm</ref> The tour was sponsored by E-Trade.<ref>http://articles.philly.com/2002-09-13/entertainment/25362636_1_geoff-rickly-plea-band</ref>
