Days after the group played their first U.K. gig in 24 years earlier this week (02June15), Westerberg reportedly told the audience at the Primavera Porto festival on Friday (05June15) that the gig would be the last time that he and his bandmates would perform together, and then smashed his guitar.

The band's reunion tour has seemingly been cut short as they have also cancelled two gigs that were due to take place in July (15).

The Replacements formed in 1979, but broke up in 1991. Despite their fractured history, the band has been hailed as a huge influence on groups such as Green Day, The Goo Goo Dolls, and The Cribs.
