Aside from being the best-selling rock band in the history of American rock music, Aerosmith is unique for their durability. Other than a short 2-year period of separation from in 1979 to 81, the original members still form the band to date. From their formation in 1970 the band has endured many troubled times with health and substance abuse issues. Nonetheless, they have managed to score countless hot singles and albums that have seen them top the charts and record sales year after year. The duo of vocalist Steven Tyler and guitarist Joe Perry is cited as one of the most important partnerships in modern rock. They have penned and performed some of hard rock’s most important moments, and have managed to re-invent themselves to a multitude of generations, over several decades. Aerosmith has made a significant impact on modern rock music with scores of important modern rock bands from Motley Crue to Nirvana listing the band as a major influence.
Legendary for both their off-stage tour antics and their sheer live energy, Aerosmith has established themselves as one of the hardest working touring bands of all times. Drawing on a seemingly bottomless repertoire of hard rock and blues hits, “The Bad Boys from Boston” have continually thrilled their legions of fans worldwide for over the past forty years. This DVD features a stand out recording in Tokyo (circa 2002) during one of Aerosmith’s most successful modern era world tours entitled "Just Push Play". Here you will find Tyler and Perry in fine form, running through a stream of their hits thrilling a raucous and frenzied audience! A true testament to what makes live rock n’ roll one of life’s greatest experiences!
