The DVD, titled Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014 features one of the band’s best loved live gigs in recent memory. The live footage of the set had already hit cinemas in February and will be released on DVD in September.

Rhythm guitarist Brad Whitford says that the music hasn’t been altered and what’s on the DVD is the “unfiltered” version of the band’s performance. Speaking in an interview, Whitford said “On this particular show, you are hearing it exactly as it happened. Nothing has been fixed or repaired, just sonically enhanced. If you weren’t there … you will see something that’s as good as it can possibly be represented.”
