This bums me out muchly for those Westernerds who weren’t able to scoop up a ticket.
A majority of the Replacements fans who tried to buy tickets to the band’s long-awaited “homecoming” concert got nowhere as fast as they can this morning.
Tickets for the Minneapolis rock legends’ Sept. 13 at Midway Stadium sold out within minutes of the general on-sale this morning. That’s about 13,000 tickets gone before you can name the last Paul Westerberg album, which will be the biggest crowd the band ever played to in its home town(s). It will also be the first Replacements show in the Twin Cities in 23 years, following an initial short run of festival reunion gigs at that started last August.
