The original members of legendary heavy metal band Spinal Tap reunited to perform in London at Wembley Stadium for the July 7 Live Earth concert event that was held on seven continents. Singer David St. Hubbins (Michael McKean), lead guitarist Nigel Tufnel (Christopher Guest) and bassist Derek Smalls (Harry Shearer) scorched the stage with a set list that included “Big Bottom,” “Stonehenge" and a new single written especially for the occasion, "Warmer Than Hell."

Nigel Tufnel

As longstanding Shure endorsers, Spinal Tap relied on many of the company’s products for the show, including Beta 58s on vocals and Shure wireless systems on guitar and bass.  

"We're glad to come out and support this vital cause, and our thanks goes out to Shure as well for their continuing support," St. Hubbins said backstage after the show. "Things have a way of going wrong sometimes when we play, but Shure has never failed us, not even once."

Derek Smalls

In addition, Rob Reiner, director and cowriter of the satirical 1984 rock documentary, This is Spinal Tap, created a new 15-minute film about the group and once again appears as filmmaker Marty DeBergi, the role that Reiner played in the original feature film. DeBergi's new short film reveals what members of Spinal Tap has been up to lately. DeBergi's new film is available at http://liveearth.msn.com/.
