Saturday 6/16

After returning to the stage in South America and Japan last fall, the fractured Aerosmith (did you see the acrimonious "60 Minutes" profile in March?) is back in the U.S.A., kicking off its Global Warming Tour in Minneapolis. How will Steven Tyler -- who has seemed preoccupied with "American Idol" and his own Brand Tyler career (did you read his 2011 autobiography "Does the Noise in My Head Bother You?") for the past few years -- get along with guitarist Joe Perry? Will they preview their August album, "Music From Another Dimension" (their first studio effort in eight years)? After slipping in the shower (Paraguay, 2011) and falling off the stage (Sturgis, S.D., 2009), will the 64-year-old Tyler have an injury-free tour? Opening are those great purveyors of power-pop Cheap Trick, who are still big in Japan. (8 p.m. Sat. $39.50-$149.50. Target Center, 600 1st Av. N., Mpls. 1-800-982-2787.)
