Marking the first time the group has headlined since playing a free Fourth Of July show at Chicago’s Grant Park in 1991, The Replacements will return to its Twin Cities stomping grounds to rock Midway Stadium in Saint Paul, Minn., Sept. 13.

In addition to Westerberg and Stinson, the band includes guitarist David Minehan and Josh Freese on drums.

Although the show presented by Jam Productions, Madison House Presents and Minneapolis’ First Avenue is months away, beginning on Monday fans will find a special, presale code on The Replacements’ Facebook page.

The general onsale launches May 3 at 10 a.m. CDT.  Priced at $50 (plus fees) per, all tickets are general admission and a four ticket limit will be enforced.  Click here for what you need to know.
