Spinal Tap Self-Confim For Glastonbury


Spinal Tap have self-confirmed that they will be playing Glastonbury Festival this year, surprising fans who may have expected a perhaps more-fitting Download appearance.

In an interview with Philadelphia Daily News Christopher Guest, better known as lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel in the ‘This Is Spinal Tap’ rockumentary, said: “We originally thought about doing a full-blown “Tap” tour this year to mark the 25th anniversary of the film’s release. But that would have been a very big deal in terms of show production, requiring a lot of effects, two 18-wheelers full of equipment, a tour bus.

“To be honest, we couldn’t get that together. But we will do a couple of “Tap” shows in Britain, at Wembley Arena and the Glastonbury Festival.”

The band will join headliners Blur, Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young at the already sold-out festival taking place on the 24th, 25th, 26th, 27th and 28th June this year.
