Tattoo You by the Rolling Stones came out on August 24, 1981. The album’s release was just part of a great summer for the Stones in ’81.

The World’s Greatest Rock ‘n Roll Band dominated the Summer of 1981 in Philadelphia. They released the album, and WMMR debuted it! Then, there was a press conference with Mick Jagger in Philly at JFK stadium where he announced a huge tour. The Rolling Stones chose to begin the tour on September 25, 1981, at JFK Stadium.

Then came the tour. I was there and I still have my ticket! It’s somewhere with my large pile of rock memorabilia. I bought a bootleg t-shirt in the parking lot and watched one of the greatest bands of all time rock the stage.

Tattoo You by The Rolling Stones is one of their most iconic albums. I love it!

Happy anniversary to a great album.
