Tour 2003 is a live album by Ringo Starr and was released in 2004. After releasing Ringo Rama in 2003, Starr embarked once more with his All-Starr Band and its ever-changing collective of musicians that summer.

The performance included here is from the opening night of his tour at the Casino Rama, just outside Toronto, Ontario in Canada. Despite this, the CD booklet for Tour 2003 confusingly carries a review for a later August show in Detroit. As ever, the line-up of Starr's celebrity companions has changed once again. Bandleader Mark Rivera remains, as does singing percussionist Sheila E. New to the mix are Paul Carrack of Squeeze and Mike + The Mechanics fame, Colin Hay from Australian band Men at Work and John Waite, a solo artist who also had fronted The Babys and Bad English. Having already exhausted the appearances of most of his 1960s and 1970s contemporaries, Starr's new participants clearly add a strong 1980s element to Tour 2003, giving this recording a different edge. While Starr typically performs his well-known hits from his heyday, he does venture here to include "Memphis In Your Mind" from Ringo Rama.

Some critics were quick to note that this live album was Starr's seventh official release of the sort in fourteen years. Tour 2003 generally received lackluster reviews upon release. The release failed to chart.
