Spinal Tap A to Zed

Third World Tour: According to sources close to the band, renowned promoter Don Bernstein had offered Tap a guarantee of $25 million or 15 percent of the net to embark on a 50-city tour during 1996. According to Tap: "Beaming Tap manager Wendy Goldfinkel was recently spotted leaving the South London complex that houses Bernstein’s offices. An abandoned aircraft hanger in Freeport, Grand Bahama Island, has been leased for the early part of the summer, reportedly for rehearsals and set construction. Advertisements have begun to appear in the classified sections of newspapers throughout Europe and the U.S., calling drummers to auditions in London in June." At one point Derek told fans: "Our dates include Panama City, Islamabad, and Khartoum. We are the first band to tour this circuit without United Nations protection." Sadly, the tour never materialized.
