Flight of the Conchords are grounded for the time being, as Bret McKenzie needs time to heal.
The comedian/musician/producer fell down a flight of stairs, resulting in two broken bones in his left hand and the immediate postponement of the New Zealand act’s scheduled dates in the U.K. and Ireland.
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
