Since this is comedy and it's what I am actually thinking about at this very moment..here ya are...
My impressions and another concert goer review....funny stuff..
Bethany had a blast and bought a hoody jacket and baseball jersey shirt all with various Spinal Tap logos on them....she gave the concert an "11"
*I enjoyed the "3D" portion of the show....
One concert goer was "selected" by the group to come up front and wear the only pair of "3D" glasses they had as they did their "pre-Spinal Tap" song "Flower People".This
vampy gal in black, wore an off the shoulder t-shirt and danced and wiggled to the music like a Go Go dancer...lol
The group made motions towards her as to give the impression/illusion of being in "3D", etc
* I enjoyed seeing Annette O'Toole's nipples.
She is married to Michael McKean and like in Spinal Tap where his character David St. Hubbins has his girlfriend join the Spinal Tap tour, Annette travels with this tour and performs in the "A Mighty Wind" portions of the show. It was very cool in The Ryman last night. She is a great entertainer. The other performes seem to "tolerate" her...lol
*I enjoyed how the group merged ideas for songs together that hadn't been previousily used. "Corn Wine" and the Folk song combining a mining disaster AND a train wreck, "Blood on the Coal" or something like that was thought provoking...
Sex Farm, B**ch School, Clam Caravan, Diva Fever, Loco Man and Never Did No Wanderin'...continued the combination themes..
* I enjoyed watched one of The Ryman's security guards break out into catchy dance routine during "Gimmie Some Money"...
* and finally I enjoyed the final of three encores ... "Heavy Duty" in which heavy metal guitar sounds came out of their acoustic instruments....My ears started to bleed....lol

They managed to keep ALL the humor in the performances, without the trappings of costumes and stage sets . . .
They did have a screen on which they showed a few things which "enhanced" the humor a bit . . . particularly during "Stonehenge" . . . if you thought the tiny Stonehenge with the dwarves dancing around it in the movie was funny, I think they may have outdone it with their "video" . . . lol!
They interspersed songs with some stories . . . LOVED the bit about NBC wanting to air "This Is Spinal Tap" on a Saturday late night in the 80's, and the report from a Mr. "Clotworthy" (real name - can't make THAT up) detailing all the things that would have to be cut from the movie before it aired - hysterical!
They did lots of Spinal Tap, and some Folksmen songs from "A Mighty Wind", and an outrageous cover of "Start Me Up" . . . we were laughing nonstop during the performance!
The Nashville show was enhanced by some local talent - Delbert McClinton and Bela Fleck were the more famous performers, but Nashville has NO shortage of talented musicians - glad they called on them to help out . . .
Waiting for Nolan to check in with HIS impressions . . . and did any other Yesfans catch this in YOUR town???
