Flight Of The Conchords stars Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie will be hitting the road with a tour around the UK and Europe.
The Emmy-nominated New Zealand comedy duo will be joined by co-stars Kristen Schall (fan-turned-stalker Mel) and Arj Barker (shop owner Dave) as they perform 15 dates in the Netherlands, Scandinavia, Ireland and the UK from May 10.
"We're coming back to say we're sorry, Flight Of The Conchords has had a great relationship with the UK in the past - in some ways you could say we got our start there, and we were always over at the UK's house - but then one night, some heated words were said and Flight Of The Conchords left in a huff," quipped Jemaine.
"We haven't been back since. That was five years ago," he added.
Flight Of The Conchords, featuring the duo's second full-length album, I Told You I Was Freaky, will play dates in Birmingham, Manchester, London and Glasgow. Kristen will open for the Birmingham, Manchester and Glasgow dates, while Arj will support the London shows.
The acclaimed TV series, starring Jemaine and Bret as hapless musicians trying to make a living in New York, ended in 2009 after two seasons.
Tickets will go on sale on March 5 at 9am.
