When classic rock band Aerosmith took the stage at England’s Donington Festival last June, the group’s members knew it was a special night.
The band burned through 19 tunes, including classic songs such as “Walk This Way,” “Dream On” and “Sweet Emotion,” and other hits “Love In An Elevator,” “Janie’s Got A Gun,” “Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” and “Dude Looks Like A Lady.”
Luckily, the band had hired English film director Dick Carruthers to film the set. Footage from the performance has been made into a concert movie, “Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014,” that will be released Thursday for a single-night viewing in select theaters nationwide, including Carmike Promenade 16 in Center Valley.
Plans call for a DVD release. The last DVD Aerosmith released, 2013’s “Rock for the Rising Sun,” which chronicled the band’s 2011 tour of tsunami-ravaged Japan — debuted at No. 1 on Billboard’s Music Video chart.
The film is another career benchmark for Aerosmith, which in a career of more than 40 years has released 15 studio albums, all of which have gone gold or platinum, along with five live discs and more than a dozen compilations, with total sales of 83 million.
That makes the band among the Top 10 best-selling musical groups of all time. It was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2001.
In a recent telephone news conference, Aerosmith bassist Tom Hamilton and rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford spoke about the new film, the band and its future.
Here’s an edited transcript of the call: Continue reading
