The year is 1992, and They have returned. (Trailer). There were interviews: David Letterman, Arsenio Hall, Charles Gibson. There were appearances: Headbangers Ball, Rockline with Martha Quinn (Part 2 only. Part 1 was DMCAd. Quite exciting, this computer magic!) But then there was the concert: The Return of Spinal Tap at The Royal Albert Hall, with special guests The Folksmen, Bob Geldof, Kenny Rogers, and many other surprises. If you're Australian, don't forget your Rock 'n Rolls.
