“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.
