Hell Freezes Over

Spinal Tap reunites to play Live Earth.

Well, it will eventually. Spinal Tap's allegedly reuniting to play the London stage of Al Gore's multicontinent Live Earth festival on July 7. Billed as "concerts for a climate in crisis," the fest also hosts Madonna, the Police, and Bon Jovi. For the occasion, the Tap will debut new single "Warmer Than Hell."
This Is Spinal Tap director Rob Reiner also has a new short documentary about the reunion, which shows how the band has embraced climate change.
