Intro and Too many dicks

(don't look if you don't want to be spoiled with what is before the opening song ;) )



Wow! there are so many videos from this gig :o (not surprising, I guess... about 12,500 people in the audience...)

Londonist Music Review: Flight Of The Conchords @ Wembley Arena

If you think about it (think think about it), two unassuming Kiwis whose main UK exposure has been on BBC4 ('not that many people need a place to think, actually') should not be able to fill Wembley Arena. And yet, in these strange days, the place is not only packed to bursting but screaming with delight and shaking with laughter. Bret and Jemaine have officially stepped over the line marked 'phenomenon'.

They stay in their nerd-personas throughout the whole gig - though there's a lovely moment near the end where Bret's mask slips as he tries to remember the chords to a request for Mermaids; "how the 'uck does that one go again?" - which means we're treated to some solid gold Conchords chat about complementary muffins and getting stuck in a lift. They've also resisted what must have been a considerable temptation to go for a massive set, sticking with the tried and tested formula of a couple of stools. They're letting their talent do the talking.

And what talent. These guys are not only masters of deadpan comedy and the musical parody, but what really stands out is the quality of the songwriting. It's something that perhaps gets overlooked in the TV series, but there are bloody great tunes supporting the whipsmart lines and, since it's only them on stage supported by the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra (Nigel), it's also obvious they're excellent musicians. We should probably hate them, but they're just too nice.

Highlights? Jemaine's Arnold Schwarzenegger impression during Robots, a storming Too Many Dicks on the Dancefloor featuring an appearance by Arj Barker (who also provided a great stand-up support set), [spoiler]new (?) song Woo a Lady, spangly 70s leotards for Bowie with some very careful instrument smashing and laughing so much our cheeks hurt. [/spoiler] It's also noticeable what they didn't get round to playing: a set that lasted over two hours and couldn't manage to squeeze in Ladies of the World, Boom, Prince of Parties, Carol Brown? That's flippin' quality.

No matter how huge the crowd is, they can still control it and make each and everyone laugh. What a charisma and genius... Can you love them more? [image] [image] [image]

You can't really see anything but the little Mermaids bit.... [image]

As Bret's playing 'We're Both In Love' he says 'I might do a different song while you do that', he's referring to Jemaine taking ages to pin his jeans back together. :D

Jemaine's had many problems with those pants on this tour. It just proves what I've always thought... that he's too much man for pants. [image]

Thanks for the video. [image]

Could you make audio tracks of Mermaids and SexyLady/SugarLumps from this video, Sarah, if you haven't made that yet ;) ?

I love Nigel's rocking cello here [image] [image] [image] .

[image] [image] [image] I love it when they go off on their tangents like that. [image]

I couldn't keep myself from watching this one. A) because Nik said it was some of the best banter on this tour and I'm nosy ;D B) No way in hell I could resist Jemaine singing GnR! [image] The fact that he knew that song is just........ [image]

[image] [image]



Is it wrong that I wish they would record an album of [image] popular [image] songs as Bret puts it? Just some fantasy album. [image]
