The anticipation is over. The Replacements will play in their hometown. The Midway Stadium show will be the first time in 23 years the band have played live in Minnesota. Their last show in the Twin Cities was February 7, 1991, and played their final show in Chicago on July 4, 1991 before breaking up.

Tickets for the Midway Stadium show are $50 and go on sale at 10 a.m. on Saturday, May 3 through eTix, the Midway box office, and First Avenue ticket outlets.
