The Fair Warning Tour was a North American concert tour by hard rock band Van Halen in support of their "Fair Warning" album. Ultimately, despite the success of the tour the album's harsh tone meant it only received an RIAA certification of 2x Platinum. Out of the 82 shows, 79 of them were sold out making this one of the most successful Van Halen tours.

The last two shows in Orlando saw the band opening for the The Rolling Stones. This would be the last time the band performed as a support act until the Balance Tour.
