Introduction
The Texas Flood Tour was Stevie Ray Vaughan and Double Trouble first worldwide tour and was presented in support of their debut studio album Texas Flood. After receiving a positive reception for the album, the tour brought the band to further commercial and critical acclaim. Like all of the group's other tours, the Texas Flood Tour was a basic, minimalistic production. Although the band never followed a set list, all ten songs from Texas Flood were played at least once during the tour.

Consisting of 5 legs and 116 shows, the Texas Flood Tour began on June 22, 1983 in Bloomington, Indiana and concluded on February 25, 1984 in Honolulu, Hawaii. After the first leg in North America, the band visited Europe, where they made an appearance at the Reading Festival in England. They then returned to North America where they opened for acts such as Men at Work and the Moody Blues. For the final show in Honolulu, the band opened for Bryan Adams and The Police.
