Hampton Coliseum (Live 1981) is a live album by The Rolling Stones, released in 2012. It was recorded at the Hampton Coliseum in Hampton, Virginia on 18 December 1981, for what was the next-to-last show of the band's U. S. tour that year. The album was released exclusively as a digital download through Google Music on 30 January 2012.[1]

The song list on this collection is nearly identical to that of Live At Leeds, another Rolling Stones live album released later in 2012 which documents the final show on the 1982 European leg of the same tour. This recording includes the songs "Waiting on a Friend" and "Let It Bleed;" the Leeds recording does not but does include "Angie," which does not appear here.

Two items of note from this performance: 1) While introducing the band, Mick Jagger leads the audience in an impromptu version of "Happy Birthday," in honor of Keith Richards turning 38 on this day. 2) Just over a minute into the final song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction," Richards had a memorable confrontation with a fan who jumped on stage. Without losing his composure, Richards moved in front of the charging fan, wielding his guitar like a baseball bat, then shoved the fan away from Jagger with his guitar until security guards could escort the intruder away. On this recording, Jagger can be heard singing through the whole episode, while Richards' guitar falls out for a few moments and some feedback can be heard. Richards then resumes playing, his instrument audibly unaffected by the rough contact it absorbed.[2]
