We’ve got some super exciting news to start off this week – Canadian rock legends, CRASH TEST DUMMIES will be visiting the beautiful shores of South Africa in February 2018. The tour will be led by Brad Roberts, lead singer and songwriter for the band, and fans will be able to enjoy a fun-filled day-time picnic vibe in both Cape Town and Pretoria, while jamming to the performance of this extraordinary band.
It’s really going to be full on nostalgia for most of the people in attendance, who grew up listening to CTD (you know who you are). There is no mistaking the unique bass-baritone voice of lead singer Brad Roberts which no doubt will be conjuring fond memories of CRASH TEST DUMMIES hits over the last two decades. The band received international acclaim with their sophomore record, ‘God Shuffled His Feet’, released in 1993. Their single ‘MMM MMM MMM MMM’ went to the top of the billboard charts in America and then over in Europe too. Over the years the band has touched on funk and soul, folk, electronic music and even Christmas tunes and now fans will be able to enjoy Roberts’ voice and offbeat lyrical
sensibility as they perform live to their South African fans.
The band has visited South Africa before, but is delighted to return in 2018. Fans can look forward to a performance of material weighted towards their ‘God Shuffled His Feet’ album, but also including songs from the more than ten CRASH TEST DUMMIES albums over the years.
CRASH TEST DUMMIES will be joined on stage by legendary South African bands AKING, Bed On Bricks, WONDERboom and Adventure Man both in Cape Town and Pretoria. Tickets are limited so get yours today to avoid disappointment.
