In Rob Reiner's cult classic, Spinal Tap, the loudest band in England, attempts to make a comeback with a North American tour promoting their new album “Smell the Glove.” Marty DiBergi (Reiner) sets out to make a documentary of the legendary rock band’s exploits on the road, featuring front men Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) and David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean) and bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer), bearing witness to the highs and lows of what makes a musician into a rock star.

Spinal Tap proves there is definitely a fine line between stupid and clever,” said director, co-writer, and star Rob Reiner.

Just don't point at Nigel's guitar.

Please note: this event is strictly for over 18s only.

*Plus online booking fee. Tickets purchased via our Box Office do not have a booking fee.
