The setlist for The Replacements’ 2015 tour kick-off was pretty epic

"Sixteen Blue", "Seen Your Video", and "The Ledge" among major highlights.

    The Replacements kicked off their first legitimate U.S. tour in nearly 25 years last night at Seattle’s Paramount Theatre. Titled “Back By Unpopular Demand,” the show was the band’s first following last year’s two appearances at Austin City Limits, and they shook off any settled dust with a 31-song performance. Needless to say, the setlist was worthy of being called “epic.”

    There were a dozen tour debuts for this reunion run, specifically opener “Seen Your Video”, “Never Mind”, “Nobody”, “20th Century Boy” (T. Rex cover), “Bang a Gong (Get It On)” (T. Rex cover), “Anywhere’s Better Than Here”, “Treatment Bound”, “Sixteen Blue”, “The Ledge”, “Kissin’ in Action”, “Within Your Reach”, and Westerberg’s own “Ghost on a Canvas”.

    As expected, they also tossed in snippets of other goofy covers and made sure to play a handful of guaranteed classics, but on the whole, it’s just further proof they’re hardly phoning this reunion in, despite the tongue-in-cheek press releases. Who would have ever thought The Replacements would be so damn ambitious?
