Get tickets: Flight of the Conchords announce first UK tour in 7 years

New Zealand’s fourth most popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo, or Flight of the Conchords as you may know them, are set to head back to British shores in March 2018 for their first UK tour in over seven years. The band have been on somewhat of a hiatus in the wake of their two season run on HBO, and the release of their second album, I Told You I Was Freaky back in 2009.

Since then Jemaine Clement has starred in numerous films and television shows, including the excellent comedy vampire spoof, What We Do in the Shadows, and Noah Hawley’s surprisingly good psychological superhero drama, Legion, whilst Brett McKenzie won an Academy Award for his scoring for The Muppets. Of course, despite their successes, to see them back doing what launched both their careers is an occasion still worthy of rejoicing.

Jemaine and Bret’s “Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour” stops in all the major locations you’d expect (see below). General release tickets will be available on Friday 27 October at 10am here.
