Dream Within A Dream Tour

Start date: 1st November 2001
End date: 28th July 2002
Number of shows: 1 in Asia, 67 in North America (68 total)
Tour director: Wade Robson
Dream Within A Dream was Britney’s most ambitious tour to-date, based on Edgar Allan Poe’s poem of the same name, with the main stage connecting to a B-stage by runway as well as featuring a flying platform and waterfall. The show was due to visit Europe in 2002, but all international dates were postponed following the terror attacks of 11th September 2001, with a revised version of the show being performed in Tokyo in April 2002; the only non-North American date.
