FLIGHT OF THE CONCHORDS & VERY SPECIAL GUEST ARJ BARKER – TOUR OF NZ!
The rumours have been confirmed - Flight of the Conchords are touring the country.
Following the success of their self-titled HBO hit TV series, Flight of the Conchords have sold out tours across the United States and Europe performing at landmark venues like the Hollywood Bowl, New York's Radio City Music Hall and London's Wembley Arena. They're finally bringing the live show back home with an extensive tour of New Zealand.
“It's going to be great to play New Zealand again. I can't wait to perform where people can understand our accents” said McKenzie.
“We're looking forward to our very first New Zealand national tour. This will be by far the most convenient tour we've ever done.," enthused Clement.
Their story is well known in New Zealand; TVNZ turned them down and HBO picked them up. Since then they've been nominated for Emmy Awards, they've won a Grammy Award, they've been on The Simpsons and they've met David Bowie (in a dream).
For New Zealand fans, the wait is over. This June is Business Time. Bret and Jemaine are going to Rock the Party. So leave your epileptic dogs at home cause there'll be Too Many Dicks on a Dance Floor near you.
Joining the tour is very special guest, American stand-up comedian Arj Barker –Bret and Jemaine's indifferent friend Dave Mohumbhai, the pawn shop guy from their HBO TV sitcom.
Arj said "This tour is going to go off - but not in the way that milk goes off - in a much, much better way.”
