replacements

Perhaps fittingly, The Replacements capped off last night’s triumphant hometown gig — their first in 23 years, and the band’s first non-festival date since reuniting last summer — with a performance of fan favorite “Unsatisfied,” the first time the Let It Be classic has been dusted off since the ‘Mats got back together.

That concluded a 23-song performance before 14,000 fans at St. Paul’s Midway Stadium, a set that also featured the reunion debut of “Skyway,” which Paul Westerberg performed solo.

Below, check out video of both “Unsatisfied” and “Skyway,” plus the full setlist.

The ‘Mats —  Westerberg and Tommy Stinson, plus guitarist David Minehan and drummer Josh Freese — perform next on Friday in New York City.
