(Classic Rock) The Replacements have confirmed their lineup for a handful of reunion shows 22 years after they last performed. Original members Paul Westerberg and Tommy Stinson will be joined by drummer Josh Freese and bassist David Minehan.

Freese, who's previously played with Devo, Weezer and Nine Inch Nails, was also a member of Guns n'Roses alongside Stinson, and toured as part of Westerberg's solo band in the 1990s alongside Minehan.

The band were reactivated after former guitarist Slim Dunlap suffered a debilitating stroke last year. Westerberg and Stinson recorded a covers EP, Songs For Slim, to help with his medical bills. They recorded again in May this year, at which point they also finally accepted an invitation to play live. more on this story
