The Replacements announce first live dates in 22 years

The Replacements have announced three shows - their first dates in 22 years.

The band have confirmed headlining slots at three Riot Fests in Toronto (August 24 - 25), Chicago (September 13 - 15), and Denver (September 21 - 22).

Other bands scheduled to play Riot Fest include Iggy & the Stooges, Public Enemy, Flag and Rocket From The Crypt.
