When Aerosmith announce their tour on Monday, they could be adding their name to the list of artists doing farewell tours. Yesterday, the Enterprise Center posted a photo of the façade of their venue with ‘Walk this Way’ on the marquee. Lots of venues across the country have been hinting at Aerosmith coming through, but even more speculation is that this will be the band from Boston’s last go around. This upcoming tour is their first in the U.S. in eight years, but it’s also in celebration of their 50th anniversary. Drummer Joey Kramer who physically not up to it. It’s scheduled to start in September.

Kenny Chesney says if he ever has a chance to perform at the Super Bowl, he might say NO, because it seems like the “kiss of death.” It might be good for his career, but everyone who does it gets a lot of hate too. So, all things being equal, he’d rather have a beer and watch the game with his dad.

BuzzFeed asked its readers to list movie characters that shouldn’t be glorified because they’re actually toxic or controversial. Here are 10:
- Dumbledore from the “Harry Potter”series. “He manipulated and used people, even literal children, especially poor Harry. Left him in an abusive home for the ‘greater good.'”
- Ferris Bueller from “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”. “He’s a slimy, manipulative liar and con artist. Probably went on to work at Enron. He is a perfect symbol of everything that went wrong with America.”
- Maui from “Moana”. “He straight-up doomed the world for selfish reasons and attempted to murder a child on several occasions.”
- The Phantom from “The Phantom of the Opera”. “He’s not romantic. He’s a creep.”
- Uncle Rico from “Napoleon Dynamite”. “He’s hilarious and accurate to somebody each of us knows, but he definitely is a bad person. A loser, mostly. Living in the past, trying to make money by manipulating emotions.”
- Tyler Durden from “Fight Club”. “He’s a misogynistic, controlling, manipulative sociopath.”
- Daniel Hillard (Mrs. Doubtfire) from “Mrs. Doubtfire”. “If you think about the story with even an ounce of depth, his character is basically a nightmare stalker ex.”
- Allie from “The Notebook”. “Allie is just as toxic as Noah. She hit him and screamed at him violently. If he did that, people would very much call it out.”
- Christian Grey from “Fifty Shades of Grey”. “Just the abuse and the non-consensual stuff he did to [Anastasia]. If he wasn’t rich and beautiful, that story would be a crime one.”
- Tony Montana from “Scarface”. “He isn’t a hero. He betrayed everybody close to him in his life. His best friend, sister, and wife all came second to power, greed, and materialism.”

The reigning National League MVP Paul Goldschmidt attempted to single-handedly get the Cardinals a win finally by hitting two home runs against the Giants last night. His two homers and four hits were not enough to overcome a bunch of mistakes from the Cardinals though. An error in center field and a wild pitch helped San Francisco break a tie game in the fifth inning and pull away for a 7-3 victory. That was Goldschmidt’s 24th career multi-homer game and he did it by the third inning. The reason prized rookie Jordan Walker was not in the lineup for a third consecutive day became clear before the Cardinals made the lineup public Wednesday. They sent him to triple A ball in Memphis. To take his spot on the roster, the Cardinals brought back infielder Taylor Motter only days after removing him from the 40-man roster and passing him through waivers. Remember Walker one of the Cardinals’ best performers in the opening weeks, and he had 20 hits in his first 20 games plus that record-setting 12-game hitting streak to open his career. Coaches said pitches were attacking him differently and it had led to a “sky-high” rate of groundballs. So they wanna give him some minutes away to work on that specifically. Cards try again against the rallying giants today for some day baseball with a start time of 245pm. www.Stltoday.com
