Editorial Reviews

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. The Japanese fans came out in their droves and Aerosmith responded with some of the finest gigs 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. More than anything else it demonstrates the Japanese fans love affair with Aerosmith and their music.

2.0 out of 5 stars More Half Songs and Interuptions July 29, 2013
By Duane
Format:Blu-ray
I am very surprised after the criticism of the last release, that the same formula was used again. The quality of sound, picture and performance are certainly 5 star. The set-list for me is fantastic. I can even deal with the interviews between songs although it is completely annoying. What is unforgivable is NOT PLAYING THE SONGS IN FULL! This artsy amateur hour of presenting this concert/documentary is a tried and true recipe for failure. Some songs are presented as snippets. Beginning chopped on Toys in the Attic, Hangman Jury gets the half treatment, and the ultimate kick in the groin...Train kept a Rollin partly played over the credits. It's 2013! Please, knock it off with this crap! The Blu-ray disc holds 50 Gig of info. Certainly more than enough to play full songs, considering how short the set-list is. Mccartney has done this with several releases and finally wised up with his latest. Producers need to take note that fans hate this nonsense. Give us all the music, uninterrupted, please!

Although not yet released in the US, this title has been on sale in Japan since mid-June (and I managed to purchase a Blu-ray copy there during my recent trip). Filmed in Japan back in 2011 (while the country was still recovering from its earthquake/tsunami tragedy), this concert film is pretty much the band's tribute to their legion of Japanese fans.

On the positive side, the performances are awesome and very nicely filmed (as one would expect from seeing Aerosmith performing live). And the focus here is more on the 'hard rock' songs from the band's catalogue (none of those cheesy ballads that they have become so famous for since the 1990s... don't worry, that irritating song from "Armageddon" is not here). So, if you prefer the harder and 'bluesier' side of the band, this one is for you. It is possible though that some fans may be unhappy about the omission of some of the band's better-known songs from this collection (eg. "Janie's Got A Gun", "Dream On", etc). The Japanese edition contains 4 bonus tracks ("Train Kept a Rollin" - full version, "Lord of the Thighs", "Lick and a Promise" and "One Way Street") but I am not sure whether these are included in the US release.

Now, to the negatives. Although I love the performances here, I really hate how this Blu-ray is organized. First of all, this is a 'collection of performances' from various shows rather than a single complete show. Ok, there's nothing wrong with this from my perspective... however, why on earth do they have to mix short interviews/comments/tour footage in-between almost every song??? WHY, WHY, WHY??? Most of us buy a live DVD/Blu-ray because we want to watch the band perform... we want a continuous, non-stop 2-hour live show.

3.0 out of 5 stars Aerosmith Rocks! July 26, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I agree with the previous reviewers in that this is an awesome concert by the group. They are absolutely on fire and the video and sound is excellent. The reason I'm giving it only 3 stars is that the interruptions with the interviews between songs. Were it not for that, I would have given 5 stars. I wish they would release a "deluxe" version where the entire show is not interrupted and the interviews are in bonus material. It would be nice to put this DVD on at a party and not worry about having to pick up the remote to skip the interviews.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great for casual fans July 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The other reviewers were accurate. This DVD/blu ray is great for the casual fans who enjoy Aerosmith's deeper tracks. It has great visuals and great sound and Aerosmith's performance is great.

As a huge fan I was completely disappointed that they showed only the last section of Hangman Jury. It was one of the reasons I was looking forward to this video. I love the song and was looking forward to seeing it and was extremely unhappy that they cut the first 3/4's of the song! Why did they even include it in the movie at all?

I was also annoyed by the fact that this has the same snippy style as the You Gotta Move DVD: Every 2-3 seconds the camera angle changes and it's hard for me to pay attention to what's going on. I can't stand these concert videos that change to different cameras with every blink of the eye. I kept wanting to see more of Steven Tyler, Joe Perry, Tom Hamilton, Brad Whitford and Joey Kramer. Every time it focused on one of them, it would cut to another so fast that I couldn't focus on the cool moments these guys were giving.

As a fan of the band members as well as their music, I enjoyed the interview parts. But the interviews were so short. I don't really understand why some people are complaining, saying that this isn't a concert DVD because of the interview segments. A large majority of Rock For The Rising Sun is the concert part. I actually would have liked more interviews. I did enjoy the behind-the-scenes segments.

I think the song selection is great (I wish they would play some of those deeper cuts live in the US - not only Japan!). They played extremely well and I was happy with their performance. The sound quality is awesome.
