Influential band set to play live for the first time in 22 years in Toronto next Sunday (August 25)

The Replacements confirm line-up for upcoming reunion gigs
The Replacements have fleshed out the band's line-up for their upcoming reunion gigs.

Founding members Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson announced in June that they would be playing live for the first time since 1991 with a trio of headline slots on North American alt-rock roadshow Riot Fest. They'll make their live comeback at the Toronto leg on August 25 before topping the bill in Chicago on September 15 and Denver on September 21.

Westerberg and Stinson will joined on the dates by drummer Josh Freese and guitarist Dave Minehan, the Minneapolis Star Tribune has confirmed. Both musicians backed Westerberg on solo tours in the '90s.

Meanwhile, Freese and Stinson played together in a late-'90s Guns N' Roses line-up. Freese, a renowned session drummer, has also played live over the years with Nine Inch Nails, Devo and Paramore, while Minehan is a member of Boston band The Neighborhoods.

The Replacements formed in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 1979 and went on to release seven studio albums, the most successful of which, 1989's 'Don't Tell A Soul', peaked at Number 59 on the US albums chart. The band played their final show in Chicago on July 21, 1991 and have since been hailed as an influence by Green Day's Billie Joe Armstrong, who said attending a Replacements gig "changed by whole life", as well as by The Cribs, The Goo Goo Dolls and They Might Be Giants. The band's original lead guitarist Bob Stinson, older brother of Tommy, passed away in 1995.
