Flight of the Conchords — the folk-comedy duo comprised of Kiwis Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie — has been temporarily grounded.
The remainder of the group’s concert dates, planned for the U.K. and Ireland, have been postponed after McKenzie fell down a flight of stairs and broke two bones in his left hand. The band announced the news in a post to Instagram.
“Unfortunately I’ve broken two bones in my hand today in a very rock ‘n’ roll injury — falling down some stairs,” McKenzie wrote. “The doctors have informed me that I won’t be able to perform for several weeks.”
The Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords tour kicked off March 5 in Portsmouth, England and was set to continue through April 3 ending with a show in London. Specific rescheduling information hasn’t yet been announced.
It was announced in January that the duo is set to release a new hourlong comedy special on HBO in May.
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. -Bret McKenzie Full Info: http://smarturl.it/fotcpostpone
