Spinal Tap is Touring in 2009

One of the greatest rock movies of all time is This is Spinal Tap. If you haven’t seen it, go rent it right now! This post will still be here when you get back.

They’ve all gone on to do many great things, including Christopher Guest’s movies Best in Show, A Mighty Wind and so on. The tour dates can be found here: http://www.unwigged.com/tour.html
