Spinal Tap to play Glastonbury 2009

Spoof rockers' confirm themselves for Worthy Farm

Spinal Tap have revealed that they will play at the Glastonbury festival next month.

The spoof rockers, who rose to fame through 1984 “rockumentary” ‘This Is Spinal Tap’, will play at the Somerset bash, set to take place on June 26-28, although they have not revealed which stage they will play on.

The band had originally mooted the idea of a full tour to tie in with the 25th anniversary of ‘This Is Spinal Tap’, but in the end settled for some one off shows, including a date at the London Wembley Arena on June 30.

“To be honest, we couldn’t get that together,” actor Christopher Guest, aka guitarist Nigel Tufnel, told Philadelphia Daily News. “But we will do a couple of ‘Tap shows in Britain, at Wembley Arena and the Glastonbury festival.”

Spinal Tap release a new album, ‘Back From The Dead’, featuring re-recordings of old songs plus new material, on June 15.
