Desmond and the Tutus are back in SA

Your favourite Pretoria band are back on Mzansi soil

Desmond and the Tutus are one of South Africa’s most famous indie bands and they’re finally home from their recent UK tour (yes, we saw in on Jeremy Loops’ Instagram post, and their shows were awesome). On Friday, 19 May 2017 the Tutus and their Desmond will be at Mercury Live and on Saturday, 20 May 2017 they will be kicking up the party at Aandklas in Stellenbosch.

Desmond and the Tutus is made of of four lads, all of which love music and everything about SA. The band features Shane Durrant, Craig Durrant, Douglas Bower, Nicholas Dinnie, and their music fuses together rock, pop and indie. They’ve been on international tours, they’ve performed at SA’s biggest festivals and they’ve captured the hearts of the nation with their catchy and hilarious jams.
