Guest, McKean And Shearer: Spın̈al Subdued Tap

By Tankboy in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 5, 2009 10:25PM

2009_03_Eleven.jpg Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer will be appearing at The Chicago Theatre on May performing as a Spinal Tap cover band.

Apparently Nigel Tufnel and the gang couldn't be enticed with enough money to hit the road so these three burned out sad comedians will be taking their place. (We kid, we kid.) You can bet your tiny sandwiches tickets will go fast but you can get a jump on the crowd by hitting up the pre-sale this Friday from 10 a.m. - 10 p.m. and typing in the code HCUNWIGGED.

If you don't score tickets don't go crying to Bobbi Flekman in hopes of getting on the guest list ... the label fired her a few weeks ago in the latest downsizing wave to sweep across the music industry.
