As I write this, The Replacements are less than an hour away from taking the stage at Primavera Porto for their last show of this tour. I don’t know for certain what the future holds, but I can’t imagine four guys (and an entire road crew) who were having this much fun together not playing together sometime in the future.
I’ll write more about the tour soon, but for now I’m sharing some of the best coverage that has been written this week in the wake of their Amsterdam and London shows. Read and enjoy!
