AEROSMITH TV Special To Premiere Next Month

The A&E cable network will premiere "Aerosmith: You Gotta Move" — a two-hour documentary special on AEROSMITH — on Friday, June 6 at 8:00 p.m., according to ABC ePrep. The special provides a behind-the-scenes look at the creation of AEROSMITH's latest album, "Honkin' On Bobo", and travels with the band on tour.

The following is a detailed description of the special, as posted on the A&E web site:

" 'Aerosmith: You Gotta Move' embarks on a musical journey that documents the creative process, work ethic, live performance and inner workings of a world called, 'AEROSMITH'. This two-hour special also focuses on the blues based musical roots of the bands rich history. The raw and in your face presentation style compliments the bands latest effort in the recording studio and as well as their latest tour. The stripped down, back to basic production formula compliments the fact that the band is playing better and working harder than at anytime in their illustrious career. It is almost a 'Back To Their Roots' type of feel.

"Cameras are in the face of the creation as it happens. No holds bared access to a world that has seldom been witnessed, but by only a few, throughout the bands four-decade-old career. We go into the recording studio where it was as fundamental as greatness can get, we travel along the road that has been traveled so hard, we go inside the rehearsals where the band works up new material and reinvents the old, we hear their comments even when we shouldn't, and we load-in with the crew and load-out when the show moves on. Fans make an appearance along with the crew, management, and team players that underpin the energy, and all play supporting roles.

"This A&E in Concert Special Presentation is a 'Musical Documentary', recorded in the studio as well as delivered from the road where this band has spent most of their adulthood. The performances will be surprise selections, some familiar and some not, but all determined by the five band members who make this machine kick. Musical selections will be gathered from the recording of two performances that were produced on the road. There may also be a few surprises that could include sound check moments, impromptu jams and perhaps even some classic past performances never before seen."
