The Replacements will tour for the first time in 22 years.

That funny sound you hear is hell freezing over.

Pitchfork.com reported the legendary Minneapolis rockers have confirmed headlining slots in September at three Riot Fests in Chicago, Toronto, and Denver.

It's not quite clear who will actually play, other than frontman Paul Westerberg and bassist Tommy Stinson, who has spent the past decade or so in Guns 'N Roses. The pair recorded a covers EP, "Songs for Slim," last year, to raise money for former Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who suffered a stroke.

Pitchfork said the band will announce the rest of its line-up later. Drummer Chris Mars sang back-up but declined to play on two new songs released with a greatest hits record in 2006. Original guitarist Bob Stinson was booted from the band in 1987 and died from an overdose in 1995.

The Replacements last show was July 4, 1991, ending their run as one of the most celebrated alternative bands of the '80s. Westerberg has gone on to have a semi-successful solo career.
