VIDEO: The Rolling Stones release 1981 show

The Rolling Stones have a new offering from their archives: a 1981 concert from Hampton, Virginia.

The December 18, 1981 show was not only Keith Richards’ 38th birthday, but also the final date on the band’s North American tour in support of “Tattoo You.”

The Hampton show was one of the first ever pay-per-view events on television.

As the latest addition to the Stones Archive, the concert has been remastered by Bob Clearmountain.

The concert achieved notoriety when a fan invaded the stage during “(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction” heading towards Mick; Keith intervened by hitting the intruder with his Fender Telecaster.

The 1981 show follows the band’s release of a 1973 concert last year - check out more info at the Stones Archive here.
