Replacement to warm crowd for Costello


Nestor Aparicio

Most fans of The Replacements probably thought an opening slot for the Minneapolis band on anybody's tour would have been highly unlikely after 1989's Tom Petty debacle.

Singer Paul Westerberg was quite vocal about his and the band's displeasure with opening stints on the Full Moon Fever tour, and ardent fans seemed equally as disappointed by the shortened set. But, come Sunday night at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, The Replacements will be warming up for Elvis Costello.

"I don't know whose idea it was but we do prefer headlining," said guitarist Tommy Stinson. "Someone told me that Elvis actually asked for us. I guess someone was impressed by that. They thought it would be a neat little thing to do. It's only 10 shows so it's no big deal."
