The concert film utilized footage from both indoors and outdoors concerts. The 13th December 1981 concert in Tempe, Arizona was an outdoor stadium show whilst the 5th and 6th November 1981 concerts in East Rutherford, New Jersey were both indoor arena shows. The earlier concert film of The Rolling Stones, The Stones in the Park (1969), was shot at an outdoor rock concert whilst the later concert film of The Rolling Stones, Shine a Light (2008), was filmed at an indoor concert venue.

Classic Raw Stones...Kings of the Stadiums and Arenas
This film documents the first of many comebacks by the World's Greatest Rock and Roll Band. Are they in their prime here? Definitely NOT! But rock they do...From the curtain rising "Under My Thumb", filmed outdoors during daylight at Tempe's Sun Devil Stadium, vignetting into their indoor arena performances at New Jersey's Meadowlands Arena, you see a band that appears ageless at a time when rockers in their late 30's/early 40's were considered ancient.
Hal Ashby captures the raw essence of one of the last regular Stones Tours (back when they toured in 3-year cycles) backing one of their last strong albums, Tattoo You. "Start Me Up" is a brand new song the band is just breaking into their set. It's also the last tour with long time touring keyboardist Ian Stewart, whose obituary is noted in the film.
At times, LSTNT captures the raw energy and fun of a Rolling Stones concert from a fan's perspective. Falling balloons, confetti, the whole enchilada. After seeing this film, you'll want to either see it from the beginning again....or buy tickets to see them in person!
