DALTON, Mass. — The Grammy-nominated band Crash Test Dummies will perform live at the Stationery Factory on March 11.
The Canadian rock band was originally scheduled to perform in May 2020 but the show was canceled in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic. The band rescheduled their Berkshire County stop on the 30th anniversary tour to Friday, March 11.
"We have been so excited with the response to the 25th-anniversary tour that we knew we had to continue the party and celebrate 30 years since we made our first album. We had no idea that fans would be so enthusiastic and we are all a little gob-smacked that we can still play sold-out shows to our fans and, awesomely enough, their kids," said original band member Ellen Reid.
The concert starts at 8 p.m. Click here for more information.
Thirty years ago, the Crash Test Dummies recorded their debut album "The Ghosts That Haunt Me.'' It garnered them their first hit in "Superman's Song," and a Juno Award for Group of the Year. They carried that momentum into their successful and multi-Grammy nominated "God Shuffled His Feet," released in 1993. This album, which went double platinum in the United States, included the popular song "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm."
Setlists will include hits from the band's catalog. Original members Reid, Brad Roberts, Dan Roberts, and Mitch Dorge will be joined onstage by Stuart Cameron and Marc Arnould.
The Stationery Factory houses local businesses and community events. On the main stage, both local talent and national touring acts perform.
