Alternative-rock pioneers The Replacements are reuniting for the first time since 1991. Vocalist Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson, two of the three surviving members of the original band, will be performing at Riot Fest, the punk rock festival. They will be joined by backing musicians for all three Riot Fests in Chicago, Denver, and Toronto.
Riot Fest tweeted and then deleted the news. But what they said was, “holy. [expletive]. We’re getting the band back together. #riotfest.”
Everyone's excited it seems, and they can't hardly wait.
Riot Fest Toronto will be August 24-25. Tickets can be found here.
Riot Fest Chicago will be September 13-15. Tickets can be found here.
Riot Fest Denver will be September 21-22. Tickets can be found here.
