    The Replacements to Reunite for Riot Fest - It takes place in several locations

    '80s rockers The Replacements aka The Mats will be back on stage for the first time since a 1991 performance in Chicago. The Minneapolis-bred band has been announced as headliner for the 2013 Riot Fest in Toronto (August 24-25); Chicago (September 13-15); and Denver (September 21-22).

    The Replacements had a pseudo reunion last October so that they could record an EP in Minneapolis entitled Songs for Slim, which was a benefit for their guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered from a stroke earlier last year. A full comeback is possible, as singer Paul Westerberg hasn't shot down the idea of a full reunion with a new album.

    The complete lineups for Riot Fest are at Riotfest.org.

    Anyone going to any of the Riot Fests?
