When Flight of the Conchords announced they would be returning to the live stage for the Newport Folk Festival in July, buzz immediately started with fans wondering whether or not the "Business Time" duo would be filling out the summer with a full tour. On Monday (Feb. 29), Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie confirmed that they will, in fact, be traveling across North American starting this June, debuting new music along the way.
In their typically dry sense of humor, FotC will be embarking on the Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour. Beginning June 11 in Cleveland, the funny folk duo will then cross the United States and Canada, playing Chicago, Phoenix, Austin, Nasville, New York and more before wrapping up the tour on July 27 in Los Angeles. In total, FotC are set to play 28 shows.
As if news of the tour wasn't exciting enough, according to Sub Pop's website, the band will be premiering new music along the way at these shows.
