Spinal Tap A to Zed

Tap Into America Supertour ’84: Announced to great fanfare at a press conference at New York’s Plaza Hotel on February 1, 1984, by new Polymer president Sir Guenter Hensler, this tour never materialized. It was supposed to support the documentary, "This is Spinal Tap," which the band had not yet seen but which was scheduled for release the following month. Dates were scheduled for Valparaiso, Indiana; Hampton Roads, Virginia; and Bozeman, Montana, as well as New York, Dallas, and Atlanta. (IST) Concert T-shirts with "Tap Into America" and CANCELED iron-on decals over it are now collectors’ items because manager Ian Faith had many destroyed when the tour fell apart. Derek: "I would say you have to fuck someone in the record industry to get one of those nowadays." (SV)
