Taylor Swift will bring her 1989 World Tour to St. Louis today for shows tonight and tomorrow. Swift was in Nashville over the weekend where she brought Mick Jagger onstage to sing “Satisfaction”. Steven Tyler, Kelsea Ballerini and Alison Krauss were featured with Swift in the Friday night show. Tickets for the shows through Stubhub are starting at $190 for tonight’s show and $170 for tomorrow night’s.

Are you heading to one of the Taylor Swift shows here in St. Louis at Scottrade Center in downtown St. Louis? Here are some things to know. Vance Joy will open each show. Jamie Lees of the Riverfront Times wrote a piece Friday saying Taylor Swift may be a psychopath. No word on if she will be attending the show. Be on the lookout for a wardrobe malfunction, which happened to Swift in St. Louis back in 2011.

Jonathan Papelbon went after Bryce Harper in the Washington Nationals’ dugout during a game yesterday. Papelbon and Harper, who are teammates, had been having words for the previous inning or so.

Hotel Transylvania 2 Blows Away Expectations In Debut

Hotel Transylvania 2 was a massive hit in its debut over with the weekend, taking in an estimated $47.5 million to easily win the weekend box office. That figured is $2 million over the highest mark some people thought it could get and $5 million more than the original did in its debut weekend. It also set the record for largest September opening, a record previously held by Hotel Transylvania.

The Intern opened with $18.225 million for second place. Maze Runner: The Scorch Trails picked up $14 million in its second weekend of release. Everest brought in $13 million in its first weekend of full theater release.

The Visit brought in $6.75 million in its third weekend of release. While that figure put the movie in sixth place for the weekend, it is still more than the film’s $5 million budget. The M. Night Shyamalan film has now made $52 million domestically in less than three full weeks of theater release.

Check back to RealLifeSTL on Thursday for my Weekend Movie Guide. I’ll have more on the weekend box office numbers as well as looks at The Martian, The Walk, and Freeheld.

Man Shot In Downtown St. Louis Leaving St. Louis Cardinals Game

Another tragic and senseless shooting happened in downtown St. Louis over the weekend. Christopher Sanna and his girlfriend had been celebrating his mother’s 60th birthday at the game when they left early to walk back to his car. A dark-colored sedan stopped at a stoplight and a man jumped out of the car and ran towards them. Sanna’s girlfriend gave the man her purse, as he demanded, and then turned to run when he pulled out a gun. The man fired several shots, some of which hit Sanna in the back. The family has been told that Christopher Sanna will likely never be able to walk again. The incident happened at the corner of Walnut Street and Memorial Drive in downtown St. Louis. The suspect is described as a black man in his 20s with his hair in dreadlocks. He was not wearing a shirt.
