“It’s always an absolute hoot that leaves me howling at the moon, performing at Donington we couldn’t have had a better time on stage that night,” says Steven Tyler. “I could feel the vibes of all the greats pulsing through the stage like AC/DC, Rage Against the Machine, Metallica and so many more.”
“We have played Donington many times but this performance was one of our best,” said Joe Perry. “Thanks to our fans who were there who helped us make it a night to remember. We are proud to have it be part of this theatrical series and it will give our fans who weren’t there around the world a chance to relive an ass kicking night of rock and roll.”
“We’re really proud and grateful to have been chosen to headline the Download festival at Donington for 2014,” Tom Hamilton says. “It was an awesome experience and I think this film captures it. Special thanks to the insane fans who stuck with us through mud and rain.”

The first event in the “Classic Music Series,” Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014, will be followed monthly by a who’s who of rock and pop which will be revealed shortly. Expected events include: a singer with a history of hits since the ‘50s face-to-face with a modern pop mega-star, the beloved progenitors of the jam band genre, one of the UK’s greatest and most influential rock acts, a lauded guitar god and many, many more.

Sounds great, I hope this show gets released on DVD as well, I’d buy it! 🙂
It’s gonna be cool seeing this on the big screen. I’m sure they’ll release it on dvd further in the year. VH1 Classic has already shown a couple of song performances from Areosmith at the Download Festival and they played and sounded great.
Janie’s Got A Gun, Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing, Dude Looks Like A Lady…….yeah, a ‘really rocking ‘set there, why don’t they just play their last album live, Gees!-Aerosmith used to THE F’S***…now, they play, F’ing ‘Janie’s Got a Gun…..can’t believe these are same guys who wrote, ‘Lick & A Promise’, ‘Same Old Song & Dance, ‘Toys in the Attic’, ‘Rats In The Cellar’, ‘Lord of the Thighs’, Hell-‘Draw The Line’ is so much better than the crap they churn out now…..f’ing duets with Carrie Underwood & syrup-ass-s*** like, ‘Don’t Want to Miss A Thing’….so disappointed-I just want to grab’em & shake’em and say, “Wake the F Up-you’re Joe F’ing Perry-act like it.
Aerosmith hasn’t put out anything that interests me (although their sales are good) in a long while. However, in the 70’s, they put out some of the greatest albums in rock history. Their creativity was at an all time high (as were they). Toys in the Attic was a near perfect album in my opinion. Songs from that era like “Uncle Salty” and “Seasons of Wither” were particular favorites of mine. It showed that they had way more depth that just a straight up rock band. These songs were definitely the sound track of my misspent youth. (along with Sabbath, Priest, Maiden, Rush, Frank Marino, etc,..) Long live the 70’s.
Pump is a great album of the second wave.
