The Replacements, one of the biggest punk rock bands of the 1980s, is planning to reunite this summer at Riot Fest 2013, a multi-band tour heading to Toronto, Denver and Chicago.
An active band from 1979 to 1991, the members of The Replacements have not performed as a single live band since July 4, 1991. That last show, performed in Grant Park, Chicago, has become legendary -- roadies gradually replaced band members on stage until all were gone, leading to the nickname "It Ain't Over 'Til the Fat Roadie Plays."
Technically, The Replacements never broke up. The band members just stopped playing.
That all changed in October 2012. Singer Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson officially reformed the band in order to record an Ep, "Songs for Slim." Only 250 copies of the vinyl album were made and sold in order to benefit Slim Dunlap, the Replacements' guitarist, after a stroke.
