Live Earth festival will see reunion of Spinal Tap.
Those dreaming of a Spinal Tap reunion will finally get their wish: the bandmates seem to have finally found a good enough reason to reunite. That would come in the form of taking a stand against global warming. The band, led by Nigel Tufnel and David St Hubbins, is to come together once again for an appearance at this summer’s upcoming Live Earth Festival. What’s more, a new film is being screened today that dives into the band’s eco-consciousness. The director for the film, Rob Reiner, goes way back with the band, all the way back to their rockumentary, “This is Spinal Tap.” Reiner commented on the band’s decision to play Live Earth, saying that the band is “not that environmentally conscious, but they’ve heard of global warming.” He joked that band leader Nigel thought the term meant he was wearing too much clothing, a problem solved by removing his jacket. Spinal Tap will be at the Al Gore organized festival at Wembley Stadium on July 7th.
