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).
Last year, Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson reunited to record a four-song EP, Songs For Slim, to raise money for former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who had suffered a stroke.
Westerberg and Stinson are also confirmed for the line-up scheduled to play Riot Fest. Their last show was on July 4, 1991 in Chicago.
Other bands scheduled to play Riot Fest include Iggy & the Stooges, Public Enemy, Flag and Rocket From The Crypt.
