Flight of the Conchords (aka Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie) will return to the U.K. & Ireland in March 2018. See ticket details below.

Named the "Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour," it's the first time the Grammy-award winning comedy duo will have been in the UK in seven years.

Despite their absence, the duo's following is still feverish. The dates include two comparatively small shows at the Hammersmith Apollo (now named Eventim Apollo), a host of Arena's in most of the major cities in England, one stop in Scotland, and one in Ireland. Wales and Northern Ireland are left out.

The tour comes to the UK next year having already been doing the rounds the other side of the pond in 2016 to rave reviews. Comedy rock legends Tenacious D even booked them to headline their Love Supreme Festival.

Despite breaking through with a sitcom, Flight of the Conchords' satirical, catchy songs such as, 'Hiphopopotamus vs. Rhymenoceros', 'Inner City Pressure' and 'Business Time', proved such a hit independently of the series - with millions logging on to YouTube to play them - that SubPop signed them to put out two albums.

The show itself is one of the TV highlights of the noughties. The plot of the two series - released  2007 and 2009 - centre the two dippy, gaumless New Zealanders hopelessly trying to make their band break in the US. Their lives revlove around the twin room they share in a cramped New York apartment where they work odd jobs, try and get gigs by checking in with over-ambitious manager, played by Rhys Darby, and attempting to avoid their only fan Mel, played by Kristen Schall. 

Tickets will be on sale Friday, 27 October at 10am GMT. Check here for more information
