Filmmaker Casey Patrick Tebo’s concert film, Aerosmith: Rock for the Rising Sun, will be heading home on July 23 as both DVD and Blu-ray product offerings from Eagle Rock Entertainment.
Following the 2011 earthquake and tsunami that brought widespread devastation to Japan, Aerosmith elected to continue with their scheduled “Back on the Road” concert dates despite concerns about the viability of some of the venues.
Tebo not only documented the behind-the-scenes issues and daunting logistics related to staging such events during the aftermath of this nation-shaking event, but in the process captured the raw emotions of both the band members and their legions of fans who overcame all obstacles to jam the concerts.
16 complete live-concert numbers are included in this unique rock-your-socks off concert/documentary film. Counted among the songs served up by Aerosmith are “Draw the Line,” “Livin’ on the Edge,” “Train Kept a Rollin’” and “Sweet Emotion.”
Bonus features include two bonus tracks, “Lick and a Promise” (recorded at the Hiroshima Green Garden Arena) and “One Way Street” (Tokyo Dome).
Also on the release calendar from Eagle Rock Entertainment in July are newly-prepared Blu-ray editions of Bee Gees: One Night Only and Scorpions: Moment of Glory … both street on July 30.
