In case you’ve been living under a rock, you’ll know that one of this country’s best ‘exports’, Flight of the Conchords are heading back home to do an extensive tour of the New Zealand.
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 and now they’re selling out venues across New Zealand!
Due to this unprecedented demand, the Conchords have just announced additional shows at Wellington’s Michael Fowler Centre on Thursday 21 June and Auckland’s Vector Arena on Sunday 1st July.

“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.
This June is Business Time. Be sure you get in quick to join Bret, Jermaine (and Arj), as they Rock the Party at a venue near you.

And just in case you don’t know their infamous story; 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).
*minimum 1000 prime seats are available from 9am Saturday 31st March by application and in person only at the Vector Arena box office. There’s been a great deal of concern over ticket scalping in recent weeks. We really want to get tickets in local people’s hands at face value, so it’s back to where you personally queue up at the box office! Be very early, bring your warm clothes, and grab a couple of the best tickets.
