Funnyman Neil Innes has regrouped his Beatles parody band The Rutles for an upcoming U.K. tour. The former Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band star and sidekick John Halsey, aka Ron Nasty, and Barrington Womble, will hit the road as the 'Pre-Fab Four' in May (14). Bandmates Eric Idle and Ricky Fataar will not be a part of the reunion. The Rutles were conceived by Innes and Idle for a skit on the Monty Python star's British comedy show Rutland Weekend Television and they became a cult act, releasing a handful of well-received albums featuring Beatles song parodies and even starring in the mockumentary All You Need Is Cash.
