Spinal Tap to reform for Live Earth gig

By
Legendary mock-rock band Spinal Tap are to reform for the Live Earth gig at Wembley Stadium this summer.

The event will take place on July 7 and will feature all four of the actors who played the band in the 1984 film This Is Spinal Tap.

Singer David St Hubbins (played by Michael McKeen), guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) and bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) will all appear at the concert.

They have also made a ten-minute film that is to be screened at the gig.

The film's director and the man behind the reformation, Rob Reiner, told Gigwise, "They're not that environmentally conscious, but they've heard of global warming.

"Nigel thought it was just because he was wearing too much clothing - that if he just took his jacket off it would be cooler."
