"I'll write you a letter tomorrow, tonight I can't hold a pen ..."

The Replacments have confirmed three show dates in the US and Toronto for 2013. The Star Tribune, Consequence of Sound and Pitchfork have all run articles on this news. The RIOT FEST series of concerts has them listed in their line-up.

Here are the dates we know:

DENVER Sept 21, 22 

TORONTO Aug 24-25.

Check out Riot Fest here.

With so much focus on the Songs For Slim benefit albums, which have been raising cash for Slim Dunlap's ongoing healthcare recovery, Replacements fans have been coming out of the woodwork in their basements to hope, beg, seethe, for another glimpse of their favorite punk heroes. And now we have three dates on the calendar?

Mats fans ... Are we dreaming? Or perhaps, DEAD?
