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.

Hey, let's keep one thing in mind: This is a concert film! Forget Maltin. What does he know about the Stones? I'm sorry, but I love this film. As a film? No. As a concert? Yes. Why? Because the Stones play tunes one rarely hears with great punch. Why else? Because if you didn't get to go, this is the next best thing. Any true Stones fan need only explore the set list to know that this CONCERT rocks--from one of the best covers of JUST MY IMAGINATION I have ever heard (Ernie Watts kicking butt on sax), to an excellent TIME IS ON MY SIDE and BEAST OF BURDEN couplet, and finally a tremendous HONKY TONK WOMAN (as even Maltin notes) with Keith jamming that first riff out one-handed for a joyously extended period. Don't listen to the Danish guy below. He doesn't know anything. If you are a true LIVE Stones fan, you will adore this.
