Flight of the Conchords forced to postpone UK and Ireland tour
Ticket holders will be contacted about the rescheduled dates
Flight of the Conchords have been forced to postpone their Irish and UK tour dates after Bret McKenzie sustained an injury on tour.
The comedy duo from New Zealand were due to bring their musical comedy show to the 3Arena on March 25 and April 2.
But it was announced on Sunday that McKenzie had broken two bones in his hand in a "very rock 'n' roll injury" and had been advised by doctors he won't be able to perform for several weeks.
As a result, the pair "regrettably" announced the postponement and imminent rescheduling of the Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords tour.
Bret McKenzie said in a statement on the website:
“Unfortunately I’ve broken two bones in my hand today in a very rock ‘n’ roll injury – falling down some stairs.
"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.”
UK and Ireland, the tour has been great so far but we are really sorry we have to pause it for now...
Wishing Bret the best and hope he gets bretter soon. https://t.co/eb0pAZv8Rn
