Spinal Tap, the fictional heavy metal group created for director Rob Reiner's 1984 film, This Is Spinal Tap, will reunite next year in celebration of the film's 30th anniversary.

Exact details of the reunion have not been announced. The group last came together and toured in 2009.

Spinal Tap consists of Michael McKean ("David St. Hubbins"), Harry Shearer ("Derek Smalls") and Christopher Guest ("Nigel Tufnel").
