Amazing photos! When I was a kid living in Toronto, I saved up every cent from working in a record shop to go to NYC to see a Stones show on the 81 tour. Was gonna buy a scalped ticket as these shows were sold out in seconds. When I got there, tickets were going for 1000 bucks U.S! This was an insane amount of money in 1981 to see a concert. Needless to say I didn't get to go, but was still thrilled to be in the same city as my heroes. I still wonder why the Boys skipped Canada on this tour. Saw them in Buffalo, Syracuse and Detroit on the tour tho. Still some of my best r'n'r memories...Quote
Just discovered these from Madison Square Garden show.

Those Boulder pics are pretty cool. Hadn’t seen that wardrobe before. Must not share been paying attention.
The Cockroaches and Blue Sunday play Sir Morgan’s Cove, capacity 350, in
Worcester, Massachusetts. That’s how the bill reads for the Stones’ supposedly
secret 1981 tour warm-up gig. Some 275 tickets are distributed from the
windows of unmarked cars driving around town by Ian Stewart, Stones’ tour
personnel and Worcester radio station WAAF staffers distribute tickets to
anyone displaying the station’s logo (T-shirts, hats, bumper stickers, etc.).
The station has announced on the air that the Stones will play, but not where.
However, the secrecy is blown by a much larger, jealous station in the Boston
metro area which broadcast the name of the club upon hearing of little WAAF’s
coup. This brings out 4,000 people, as well as the riot squad with helicopter
assistance. The police offer an intelligent solution and the massed fans hear
the gig through the club’s wide-open doors. Amazingly, this is the first club
gig the Stones ever play in the United States.

Sir Morgan's Cove, September 14th-15th 1981?
Keith, Bill and Chuch are dressed the same as in the only shot I have from there, and Mick's just changed shirts.
And they're playing Let it Bleed.
