Story by Charles Ken

Aerosmith fans will be able to watch the band’s 2014 Download performance at movie theaters across the U.S.

Aerosmith performed as one of the headliners at last summer’s Download Festival in the U.K., which is one of the biggest rock festivals in the world. The band, obviously, has lots of U.S. fans that couldn’t make it to the show, so they’ve decided to hold a special screening of the performance in movie theaters across North America on Feb. 26. The concert film, named “Aerosmith Rocks Donington 2014,” will be a one-night-only showing.

The Download Festival performance saw the rock ‘n’ rollers perform 19 songs, including Aerosmith staples such as “Dream On,” “Walk This Way,” “Sweet Emotion,” “Love in an Elevator,” “Janie’s Got a Gun,” “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” and more.

“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,” singer Steven Tyler said in a statement.  “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…” added guitarist Joe Perry.

The screenings will take place at 7 p.m. local time. For the full list of participating theaters and information on how to buy tickets, head to the Fathom Events website. The screening is the first in a monthly series of cinematic concert film showings called the “Classic Music Series.”
