The Replacements Announce First Tour Since 1991

Everyone has that list of 4 bands or so that they wish would get back together and play one more show. In about 20 years that band will probably be Blink 182 (too soon?) Well, if The Replacements are on your list, then you’re one of the luckier ones. They just announced their “Back By Unpopular Demand” Tour 2015.

In 2013, 22 years after they stopped performing together, singer, guitarist and head songwriter Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson decided to get back together. Drummer Josh Freese and guitarist David Minehan were onboard as well. The occasion? The Riot Fests in Chicago, Denver and Toronto. And that was that, they started playing shows again. That year were one of the headliners at Coachella, Shaky Knees, Forecastle and Bummershoot, and Jimmy Fallon even asked them to play on The Tonight Show after being banned in 1986.

The next logical step sounds like a tour. The tour will begin in Seattle, WA on April 9 at Paramount Theatre and end in Philadelphia, PA on May 9 at Festival Pier.
