Aerosmith 

7:30 p.m. Sunday, October 15. UMB Bank Pavilion (14141 Riverport Drive, Maryland Heights).

Aerosmith battled drug abuse in the '70s, pursued irrelevance through the mid-'80s and then — after reclaiming the spotlight with a Run-DMC duet and a trio of MTV-friendly videos from 1993's Get a Grip — fell into the adult-contemporary trap with the half-hearted "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing." Yet the Boston bad-boys' longevity and formidable back catalog cement the quintet as America's greatest rock band. Live, their vast repertoire — from the lighter sounds of "Dream On" to the cock-rockin' "Back in the Saddle" to the bluesy "Baby, Please Don't Go" — loses none of its shrieking, guitar-shredding glory. Aerosmith's latest greatest-hits collection, Devil's Got a New Disguise, arrives in stores Tuesday.
