"Back by unpopular demand," says the Minneapolis-based band, in a bit of self-deprecation plastered on its tour poster.

The Replacements are hitting the road again, going on a 12-city, 13-show U.S. tour.

Pollstar says it's being billed as their first run through the country since way back in 1991 (the year "Nevermind" by Nirvana came out, just for some context).

So that's the good news for fans.

The not-as-good-news? No Minnesota shows for the homegrown talent. Though you can take a short road trip to see them play two shows in Chicago (April 29 and 30) or the one in Milwaukee (May 2).

Here's the full tour, with a few international dates tacked on at the end.

  • April 9 – Seattle, Paramount Theatre
  • April 10 – Portland,, McMenamins Crystal Ballroom
  • April 13 – San Francisco, The Masonic
  • April 16 – Hollywood, Hollywood Palladium
  • April 19 – Denver, Fillmore Auditorium
  • April 29, 30 – Chicago, The Riviera Theatre
  • May 2 – Milwaukee, Eagles Ballroom
  • May 3 – Detroit, The Fillmore Detroit
  • May 5 – Pittsburgh, Stage AE
  • May 6 – Columbus, The LC Pavilion
  • May 8 – Washington D.C., Echostage
  • May 9 – Philadelphia, Festival Pier At Penn’s Landing
  • May 28 – Barcelona, Primavera Sound
  • May 30 – Amsterdam, Paradiso
  • June 2 – London, Roundhouse

Tickets for the first five shows go on sale Feb. 13 at 10 a.m. Most of the U.S. dates after that, including the Chicago and Milwaukee ones, go on sale Feb. 20, also at 10 a.m.

While this is their first full U.S. tour in more than two decades, the band has played a handful of shows since 2013, including rome RiotFest gigs and a performance at Midway Stadium in St. Paul.
