AEROSMITH's 'Rock For The Rising Sun' Coming To Cinemas Worldwide This Month

This fall, SpectiCast, in association with Eagle Rock Entertainment, will bring "Aerosmith: Rock For The Rising Sun" to the big screen in cinemas worldwide. The film captures AEROSMITH at seven different venues during their 2011 tour across Japan. The footage that makes up the film was originally only intended for AEROSMITH's personal archives, but the band and its management found it so captivating that they wanted to make it available to their fans.

In March 2011, Japan was beset by a huge earthquake, a monstrous tsunami, and the subsequent meltdown of the Fukushima nuclear plant. In the fall of 2011, despite advice to the contrary, AEROSMITH brought their "Back On The Road" tour to Japan, a country with which they had always had a special relationship. Fans came out in droves and AEROSMITH responded with some of the finest performances of their career. "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 the tour. Bonuses include extra live tracks "Lick And A Promise" recorded at the Hiroshima Green Garden Arena and "One Way Street" taken from the Tokyo Dome.

This film follows the band on tour, and combines full-length live tracks with behind the scenes footage, at times touching and emotional and at others humorous and insightful.

"This is more than just a concert caught on film," says Mark Rupp, co-founder and president of SpectiCast, "Because of the backstory behind the tour, 'Rock For The Rising Sun' is really a fully fledged motion picture, with a narrative that fans and those new to AEROSMITH will become invested in."
