The Replacements to Reunite for Three Shows
The pioneering alt rockers are to play at Riot Fest dates in Toronto, Chicago and Denver.
Fans of the Replacements, rejoice. The iconic alt rockers are reuniting after two decades for at least three shows, which were announced Wednesday.
The band will play Riot Fest dates in Toronto, Denver and Chicago, the Replacements confirmed on their website, which was launched with the announcement of their gigs.
The Replacements formed in 1979 in Minneapolis with founding members Paul Westerberg on vocals, guitarist Bob Stinson, bassist Tommy Stinson and drummer Chris Mars.
Though the band was never known for topping the charts, it enjoyed critical acclaim and a dedicated following.
In 2012, remaining members Westerberg and Tommy Stinson teased they were recording an EP of covers to benefit former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke that year. They were ultimately joined on one song by Mars for Songs for Slim, which enjoyed a limited release earlier this year.
