AEROSMITH: Rock for the Rising Sun - Live from Japan
October 17, 2013
ROCK FOR THE RISING SUN features the classic tracks: Love In An Elevator, Livin’ On The Edge, Last Child, Walk This Way, Draw The Line, Sweet Emotion, Hangman Jury, and many more, with material drawn from shows throughout this tour. The concert was filmed in seven stages across Japan: Tokyo Dome, Kanazawa Ishikawa Sports Center, Hiroshima Green Garden Arena, Marine Messe Fukoka, Osaka Dome, Aichi Perfectur Gym, and the Sapporro Dome.
In March 2011, Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the autumn of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, Aerosmith brought their Back On The Road tour to Japan, a country with which they always had a special relationship. The Japanese fans came out in droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest shows of their distinguished career. This film follows the band on that tour combining full-length live tracks with behind the scenes footage, which is at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans’ love affair with Aerosmith and their music.
