They're coming back...
Flight of The Conchords have announced their rescheduled UK tour dates, after a recent injury forced them to postpone the shows.
The New Zealand comedy duo, comprised of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, halted their March and April tour of the UK after McKenzie injured his hand falling down the stairs.
“Unfortunately I’ve broken two bones in my hand today in a very rock ‘n’ roll injury – falling down some stairs”, he wrote at the time.
“The doctors have informed me that I won’t be able to perform for several weeks. I’m sorry not to be able to do these upcoming shows but I’m looking forward to coming back and finishing the tour when I have two fully functioning hands.”
Now, it’s been announced that the rescheduled dates will occur across the UK this June and July. See a full list of new shows below. Original tickets for the March dates remain valid for corresponding dates.
