Face to Face 2003 is a concert tour by Elton John and Billy Joel. The pair performed under the Face to Face concert series, which was constantly proving more popular amongst fans.[1][2]

The tour started on 21 February in Birmingham, Alabama[3] and travelled throughout the United States for twenty four concert[4] dates until 8 May in Rosemont, Illinois, where the tour came to a close after this concert had been rescheduled from March.[5]

Joel stated in 2012 that he would no longer tour with Elton due to the fact that it restrains his setlists.[6][7]
