The Replacements to headline this year’s Riot Fest

The recently reunited alternative/punk rock legends The Replacements will be the headliner for all three shows at this year’s Riot Fest in Toronto (August 24-25), Chicago (September 13-15) and Denver (Septembers 21-22). These will be the band’s first shows since their break up in 1991. Who else is involved in the reunion besides Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson remains unknown.

For the semi-complete lineup for this year’s Riot Fest, go here.

Earlier this year, The Replacements released the covers EP Songs for Slim, which was made to help pay medical bills for their former guitarist Slim Dunlap. Their last full-length studio album, All Shook Down, was released in 1990, a year before their split.
