Finally, a real tour: The Replacements — having performed festival dates and a handful of one-offs since reuniting in 2013 — today announced a 13-date U.S. tour this spring that will find the band performing at theater-sized venues across the country.
The tour opens April 9 in Seattle and runs through May 9 in Philadelphia, hitting cities on both coasts, and in the midwest, with two shows set for Chicago on April 29 and 30 (see full dates below).
The U.S. run comes before the ‘Mats — original bandmates Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson, plus guitarist David Minehan and drummer Josh Freese — head overseas to play shows in London and Amsterdam, as well as making a festival appearance in Spain.
The band has suggested its open to recording a new album, and, in December, debuted a 24-minute mostly instrumental jazz-improv jam called “Poke Me In My Cage” on Soundcloud.
