Nearly 30 after allegedly being banned from “Saturday Night Live” over a drunken and profane performance, The Replacements returned to NBC’s famed 30 Rockefeller Center on Tuesday night to blast through their 1987 single “Alex Chilton” on “The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon.” Keith Richards was on the show, too, but didn’t plug in with the ‘Mats.

The Replacements are set to play their first non-festival dates since reuniting last year, beginning with a mini-stadium date this Saturday in St. Paul, Minn., followed by a similar show Sept. 19 in New York City.  After that, a few more festival dates are booked this fall (see full dates below).

Check out footage of the band playing it’s beloved Big Star tribute on “The Tonight Show” tonight:

  1. I feel like It’s 1987 all over again and I am listening to the Replacements “Pleased To Meet Me” on my walkman–but the batteries are dying. WHAT THE FUCK was that all about, Paul?! Were you jam’d or somenthin’?!

    ACL… I’m so there for both performances.

  3. I hope The Replacements come to Dallas!
