Replacements announce US tour
The reformed Replacements have announced a run of US tour dates in the wake of recent sporadic festival appearances.
Original bandmates Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson, plus guitarist David Minehan and drummer Josh Freese, will also play shows in London, Amsterdam and Spain and are reportedly considering recording a new studio album.
The Replacements were the archetypal college radio slop-rockers of the '80s and an enormous influence on a generation of US bands.
