Those of you wishing to see the Replacements reunion show but unable to travel out of state may be in luck.


A video of Paul Westerberg signing autographs that surfaced last night asks the question on everybody's mind: Will the Replacements be playing any shows closer to home? And the answer appears to be, "Oh yeah."

"Any chance there's a Minnesota show?" the nervous fan asks.

"Oh yeah," Westerberg replies.

"Really?" asks the stunned fan.

"I'm sure we'll do something," Westerberg confirms.

I think the myth would be a fun place to see them, It is larger then 1st ave but still feels great.

Becca, Slim WAS a replacement Replacement for their last three albums and people still went. And Chris......well, Chris was the drummer. Yes, this is a Replacements reunion. I'll take it and not judge.

Can just 2 of them really still be called The Replacements? Are Ringo and Paul The Beatles?

Is this a serious question? They can't play anywhere else but First Ave. Just wouldn't be right anywhere else. Probably have to play 2 or 3 shows to meet demand, but so what.

Midway Stadium or Target Field would be the only place that could countain.

@Andy Larson did you say this in 1990 too? one original member is dead, the other traded his drumsticks for a paint brush over a decade ago and hasn't really played since. this may not be "the same", but it's every bit as good or better.
