You Am I are bringing their Spinal Tap covers show to Ballarat

Get ready… You Am I are officially resurrecting their much-frothed This Is Spinal Tap tribute show!

Following last year’s live show performing nothing but the bangers of Spinal Tap (the fictitious band from the movie This Is Spinal Tap), the Aussie larrikins have decided there should be a sequel.

Makes sense to us!

A message to fans reads:


Our band desired to play a tribute to one of Britain’s loudest, for no other reason than blind devotion.

Since the shows last year, we have individually and collectively shouted at from many a window “When ya gunna do Tap again”?. Often accompanied by thrown animal bones.

That answer has unsheathed itself unto us.

Our life as a band has only become Tapper, and we wanna get Spinal and primal with y’all. it’s time again to align your chakras and smell the glove.

‘Well, I’m fucking over the moon about you guys doing this.’ Harry Shearer
‘This is so cool. keep it hard, boys! Rise and shred, my friends’ Michael Mckean

Our eternal thanks to Harry Shearer and Michael McKean for their benevolent, byzantine blessings.

The guys will be hitting the road on their The Majesty Of Tap Returns Tour this April and May, playing dates in Ballarat and Newcastle, plus comedy festivals in Sydney and Melbourne.

Catch them at Karova Lounge in Ballarat on April 10. Tickets via Oztix.
