SPINAL TAP Announces 'Unwigged' Tour

According to Billboard.com, SPINAL TAP will embark on a 30-date concert tour this spring. The six-week theater trek, dubbed "Unwigged & Unplugged: An Evening with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer", kicks off April 17 in Vancouver and runs through May 31 in Milwaukee. Tickets go on sale starting Friday (March 6).

The trio is in the midst of recording a new SPINAL TAP album that will be released May 26 and feature the "original studio versions" of the live songs on "This is Spinal Tap" and some new songs — including the ironically titled "Short and Sweet", a 20-minute epic to which they're "adding stellar guitar player (guest) as we speak," according to Michael McKean.
