Aerosmith: Rock for the Rising Sun

Come see the most enduring rock band of all time shower the people of Japan with beautiful rock and roll, featuring 16 live performances of classics rock hits like Walk This Way, Sweet Emotion, Livin’ On the Edge, Love in an Elevator and many more . 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. Aerosmith are truly one of the great rock acts of all time and this incredible concert film brings together tracks from across their storied career.
