Crash Test Dummies come to Mission’s Clarke Theatre

Canadian rock band performs on Wednesday, Aug. 14

Canadian rock band Crash Test Dummies comes to the Clarke Theatre (33700 Prentis Ave.) in Mission on Wednesday, Aug. 14.

The concert, presented by Rock.It.Boy Entertainment as part of the band’s 25th anniversary God Shuffled His Feet tour, starts at 7:30 p.m.

The origins of the band are tied to the Winnipeg hotspots the Blue Note Café and the Spectrum Cabaret.

They began their rise to fame with their debut album The Ghosts That Haunt Me (1991), and earned a Juno Award for Group of the Year in 1992.

Their sophomore album God Shuffled His Feet launched them to international fame, with the lead single Mmm, Mmm, Mmm, Mmm landing in the top 10 in Canada, the US, the UK and Australia.

The album went on to achieve triple-platinum status and garnered three Grammy Award nominations for Best New Artist, Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group, and Best Alternative Music Performance.

Band members decided to end their time together eight years ago after a tour around the world for their latest album.

Recently, however, new lyrics started to be written and dust was shaken off their instruments and they started growing together again as a musical unit.

Tickets for the Mission concert are available at Ticketmaster.ca for $49.50 (plus facility fee and service charges) or by phone at 1-855-985-5000.
