It was great! Spinal Tap, The Folksmen or the Might Wind, whomever showed up last night were great! The music was fabulous, the stories were enlightening and the whole evening was quite entertaining!

Great show, these guys rule. Really enjoyed Annette O'Toole. Tier 4 seats were much better than expected.

Description

Actors/directors/musicians and comedy icons Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer are doing something they have never done before; performing a six-week, 30-city multi-media acoustic tour without wigs and electric instruments. Unwigged and Unplugged: An Evening with Christopher Guest, Michael McKean and Harry Shearer has the legendary musical and comedic trio performing music from heavy metal’s loudest band Spinal Tap along with the folk music from A Mighty Wind, and more.

Unwigged and Unplugged are the guys behind Spinal Tap and The Folksmen (from “A Mighty Wind”) coming out from behind the hair, the facial hair, and the absence of hair, to perform as themselves songs from both films, and more, in a rare acoustic setting. You’ll never hear Tap songs less loud!

Unwigged and Unplugged is not about funny costumes and characters, but rather three long time friends and collaborators who make each laugh and love nothing better than to find some excuse to get together and play music. The trio commented, “With this being the 25th Anniversary of the film This is Spinal Tap, we thought this would be a fun and at the same time, a little challenging, as we have never performed as ourselves. Think of the evening as three old friends playing songs in your living room. As opposed to OUR living rooms; we won’t be home.”

Unwigged and Unpluggedwill feature songs from the original soundtrack This Is Spinal Tap (1984), the studio album Break Like The Wind (1992), and A Mighty Wind (2003) along with some special surprises and rarities thrown in.
