Aerosmith Wins ‘DVD of the Year’ Ultimate Classic Rock Award
Aerosmith‘s 2013 documentary ‘Rock for the Rising Sun‘ won the Ultimate Classic Rock Awards DVD of the Year title, handily beating out fellow heavyweights like Rush and the Beatles for this fan-chosen honor.
The DVD chronicles the group’s 2011 tour of Japan. In addition to featuring performances of 16 of their classic songs, the film focuses on that nation’s rebuilding efforts following the earthquake, tsunami and meltdown of a nuclear plant that took place in March of that year.
‘Rock for the Rising Sun’ took nearly 43 percent of the vote, almost as much as the next two competitors — Rush’s ‘Clockwork Angels Tour’ and a reissue of the Beatles’ movie ‘Help!,’ with 23 percent and 22 percent respectively — combined.
