The Replacements to play Midway Stadium in September
The poster features Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson in the classic pose of the Minneapolis and St. Paul ballplayers shaking hands across the Mississippi. But wait, what's slipping out of Paul's fingers? It's the Twin/Tone master tapes that were supposedly stolen and tossed into the river!
Update: There's alos seriously over-caffeinated radio spot making the rounds today too that makes this show sound like it's gonna be bigger than a monster truck rally. A few sample quotes: "Midway Stadium will EXPLOOOODE!" "We'll sell you the whole seat, but you only need... THE EDGGGE!" The Replacements. With the Hold Steady and Lucero. Tickets go on sale Saturday, May 3, at 10 a.m. CST for $50 plus ticketing fees at etix.com, the Midway Stadium box office, and the Depot Tavern. A four ticket limit will be strictly enforced. A presale passwords will be posted on the Replacements' Facebook page Monday. Info.
