Flight Of The Conchords Announce First Australian Tour

Flight Of The Conchords - the duo of Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement - have officially announced an Australian tour, to take place this July.

Renowned for their HBO-backed TV show of the same name, which came after a BBC2 Radio series and stand-up stints, McKenzie especially has grown to international acclaim - even winning an Academy Award this year for a song he wrote for the latest Muppets movie.

Speaking with the announcement today Clement said, "We are finally returning to Australia. Mostly to apologise."

The band have performed in Australia before - notably at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival prior to their television show, when they won Best Newcomer. This will be their first full scale tour of the nation though.

Tickets to the general public will go on sale 9am local time, Tuesday 17 April.

Dates are as follows:

Thursday 5 July - Sydney Opera House, Sydney
Saturday 7 July - Brisbane Entertainment Centre, Brisbane
Tuesday 10 July - Newcastle Entertainment Centre, Newcastle
Wednesday 11 July - WIN Entertainment Centre, Wollongong
Friday 13 July - Adelaide Entertainment Centre, Adelaide
Saturday 14 July, The Plenary, Melbourne
Wednesday 18 July - Challenge Stadium, Perth
