Aerosmith : Rock For The Rising Sun scene

Steven Tyler and Joe Perry draw the line in Japan.

Aerosmith: Rock For The Rising Sun, recorded during their 2011 tour of Japan, is the storied American band’s first live video release in nine years, since the release of You Gotta Move in 2004.

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’d always had a special relationship.

Rock For The Rising Sun follows the band on that tour, combining full-length live tracks with behind the scenes footage.

As bonus features, the DVD includes extra live tracks, “Lick And A Promise” recorded at the Hiroshima Green Garden Arena and “One Way Street” taken from the Tokyo Dome.

Here’s a song breakdown:

1) Draw The Line
2) Love In An Elevator
3) Livin’ On The Edge
