Watch Spinal Tap Reunite For 35th Anniversary Performance

Spinal Tap reform for one night only in New York City

Heavy metal icons Spinal Tap reunited this weekend for a special performance to mark the 35th anniversary of their This Is Spinal Tap documentary.

Held at the Beacon Theatre in New York City as part of the Tribeca Film Festival, the audience were introduced to the film by director Rob Reiner before an acoustic performance from Nigel Tufnel, David St. Hubbins and Derek Smalls. This is the band’s first live show in a decade, last playing together in the summer of 2009 including sets at Wembley arena and Glastonbury festival.

The band played a nine song set including a guest appearance from Elvis Costello for Gimme Some Money.

You can watch Spinal Tap’s live acoustic performance below.

And here’s the setlist:

Celtic Blues
Hell Hole
(Listen To The) Flower People
Rainy Day Sun
Clam Caravan
All The Way Home
Big Bottom
Gimme Some Money (with special guest Elvis Costello)
Sex Farm

It’s unlikely we’ll ever seen another Spinal Tap live reunion, as St. Hubbins told the New York crowd “We will see you in another 35 years!”

Fingers crossed we’ll get to hear them go to 11 again.
