Flight Of The Conchords Announce New Music & US Tour

Ladies and gentlemen, it’s business time.

New Zealand musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords sent the whole world into a into a flurry of excitement last month, when their long-awaited return to the stage was announced. The pair revealed that they would be performing at Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island this July. Now, the duo comprised of Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie have announced a complete USA tour – and while that doesn’t include Australian dates, it does come along with the amazing news that new material will be heard along the way.

Titled the Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour, fans can expect to hear their first new material since 2009’s I Told You I Was Freaky.

“I’m thrilled to get back on the road with over half the original band,” said McKenzie in a press release.

The tour is being presented by non-profit organisation Global Citizen, dedicated to ending world poverty. Senior Manager Amy Freeland explains, “Offering two tickets to each show on the upcoming “Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour” will engage and motivate Global Citizens across the U.S. to take action to end extreme poverty by 2030.”

Fingers crossed that a complete new album is on its way soon – and if we’re really lucky, perhaps even a new string of TV episodes!
