(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Newton Theatre presents the Crash Test Dummies on Saturday, May 20, 2023 at 8:00pm. The Canadian rock band from Winnipeg is best known for songs like "Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm," "Superman's Song," and their cover of "The Ballad Of Peter Pumpkinhead" which was part of the Dumb and Dumber soundtrack.
In 2018, 25 years after the release of their multi-Grammy nominated hit album “God Shuffled His Feet”, The Crash Test Dummies hit the road for the first time in 20 years with an Anniversary Tour that spanned North America. The overwhelming reception led to a 30th Anniversary Tour in 2022 for their debut release “The Ghosts That Haunt Me” that touched down in the US, UK, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, and Canada. And the band is showing no signs of slowing down . . .
In March, the band released a new, original Crash Test Dummies single “Sacred Alphabet“ as they again hit the road in North America and Europe.
“Touring again was not something we’d planned on, but surprisingly – at least to me – there are lots of people who many years later, still want to come and hear us. The folks that are coming out to see these shows tell us their stories, some of them very funny, some very dark and all very personal. It’s very humbling, being in the confidence of so many people” says lead singer-songwriter Brad Roberts, “and it has inspired us to continue to tour and make music.”
Tickets range from $39-$59 and are available for purchase online. The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.
