INITIALLY PLANNED FOR SIX-MONTH ANNIVERSARY: ESPN's original plan was to air the program as a six-month anniversary special, but Tennant said as execs were "looking at the particular stories that we were going to tell, we decided that it was much larger in scope and the message was much bigger so we decided to push it off until the one-year anniversary, and that takes us to where we are now." Another element that makes this "E:60" episode unique is an appearance from Aerosmith's Steven Tyler and Joe Perry. The duo, along with the Southern California Children's Chorus, performs a new version of the band's hit "Dream On" that was specifically arranged for the show. Tennant called it an "anthem of hope for the city and its people." The full video for the song will air at the end of the episode, intermixed with images from the '13 marathon, the survivors' recovery journeys and more.
