MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Twenty-two years after breaking up, The Replacements are reuniting for at least three shows.
The celebrated 1980s alt-rockers say they'll play at Riot Fest in Toronto, Chicago and Denver. Exact dates haven't been announced, but Riot Fest runs Aug. 24-25 in Toronto, Sept. 13-15 in Chicago and Sept. 21-22 in Denver.
There's no word on more dates or if they'll play their hometown of Minneapolis, but they've launched a bare-bones new website offering mailing list subscriptions and promising a full site coming soon, plus a Twitter account.
The Replacements haven't played a show since July 4, 1991, in Chicago. Frontman Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson got together this year to record the EP "Songs for Slim" to benefit Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a debilitating stroke last year.
