You see a lot of complaints online every time a major international band gets booked to perform in South Africa. Terms like “irrelevant” and “has-beens” get used, often accompanied by “haven’t released an album in 20 years.” And I’m pretty sure similar sentiments were expressed when Crash Test Dummies were announced to visit in February this year. But you can’t be surprised. They hit their mainstream success in the 1990s. And if you, like me, have a hard time keeping up with dates, that’s TWO DECADES AGO. I don’t really know about the rest of the internet, but I was definitely excited to see the show.
