The forthcoming Aerosmith documentary Rock For the Rising Sun, which chronicles the band’s 2011 tour of Japan, will be released on July 22 by Eagle Rock Entertainment. Good news for fans in the UK because they will get a special opportunity to catch the film on the big screen a week before its home release. Vue Cinemas, in partnership with Eagle Rock, will be screening the film for one night only on Tuesday, July 16 in a scant ten theaters across the UK.

Vue theaters in the following cities will be hosting the event:

Islington (London)

Manchester Lowry


Leeds Light


Edinburgh Omni


Newcastle Under Lyme



Head on over to Vue’s website for more information.

According to Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler, the tour documented in Rock For the Rising Sun played a vital role in getting the band back on track.

“It's funny that it took that for the band to realize how important we are to each other and how f****** good of a band we are and what a f****** good time we have on stage that is infectious and gets people happy,” Tyler said in a recent interview. “We were just all in such a bad place that we didn't realize our self-worth. I took going to Japan and playing those shows for the band to realize its own magic again. Somewhere along the line there it got the band happy again, and we thought, 'Holy shit, we gotta do a f****** record right now!' So, yeah, that tour helped us to a new album."
