The Replacements have added steam to their comeback by announcing a spring tour that will stop in a dozen cities across the U.S. in April and May, starting in Seattle and ending in Philadelphia. The tour includes no Minnesota dates, but with this amount of activity as well as rumors of a new album, it seems a safe bet that we won’t need to wait another 23 years this time.

The new dates are in addition to previously announced European shows. Here’s the complete list of dates, via the ‘Mats’ Facebook page. The poster image is a photo of the Replacements’ Midway Stadium show last year, taken by local photographer Steven Cohen.
