With amp’s that went all the way to level 11, Michael McKean (as “David St. Hubbins”) Christopher Guest (as “Nigel Tufnel”) and Harry Shearer (as “Derek Smalls”) kicked off Guest’s series of “mockumentaries” as over-the-hill hair band English Rockers in the Rob Reiner spoof “This is Spinal Tap.” The trio is hitting the road for one more shot at the top this spring and summer for a 30-city North American tour. The group will perform as themselves (unwigged) and also play songs from their 2003 folk scare film “A Mighty Wind.” In addition, they are in the studio re-recording songs from the mockumentaries. TOUR DATES
