The No Security Tour was a Rolling Stones concert tour encompassing 25 cities in North America in 1999. It was in support of their concert album No Security and recent studio album Bridges to Babylon.



The tour began on 25 January 1999 in Oakland, California, and played 34 shows across Canada and the United States. It was the first Rolling Stones tour in twenty years where they played only at indoor arenas.

The No Security Tour was the brainchild of Mick Jagger and especially Keith Richards. They decided to do an arena-only tour with crowds less than 20,000 after the world wide enormous Bridges to Babylon Tour with crowds of up to 100,000. The band insisted on smaller venues, with fewer special effects, concentrating on the music and band. The tour supported their new album No Security - a live album of Bridges to Babylon Tour recordings.

After rehearsing for twelve days in San Francisco, the No Security Tour began on 25 January 1999 at the Oakland Arena in Oakland, California. The band played 33 shows in the US and one at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto. They played to a total of 574,300 people; the largest crowd (20,100) was at Gund Arena in Cleveland, Ohio, and the smallest (12,600) was at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The final show played at the San Jose Arena on 20 April.

After this tour, the Rolling Stones commenced a brief tour of Europe which was billed as a continuation of their Bridges to Babylon Tour.

The show

The stage was a stripped-down basic structure compared to the Bridges to Babylon Tour stage. The production was designed by Mark Fisher, Mick Jagger, Charlie Watts and Patrick Woodroffe.[1] It allowed 360 degree views from ticket holders. There were no light shows and few fireworks, but more music and interaction with the band.

Most shows ran from roughly 9:00pm to 11:00pm. Warm up acts included: Bryan Adams, Jonny Lang, Wide Mouth Mason, Big Sugar, The Flys, The Corrs, Goo Goo Dolls, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, and Sugar Ray. Tickets were less expensive than previous tours. Gold Seating tickets (Front section) were as little as $75 and general admission as low as $40.

Tour set lists

The set list of songs played on The No Security Tour changed at every arena. However, "Jumpin' Jack Flash" opened all of the concerts and most ended with a two song encore usually including "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Midnight Rambler". The tour featured older tracks from the Rolling Stones' large catalogue and several played at each arena were not famous or even released. The band also played songs from their recent studio album Bridges to Babylon such as "Saint Of Me" and "Out Of Control".
