Conchord fans on street before sunrise

LATEST: Flight of the Conchords tickets sold out in Nelson this morning when more than 100 fans queued on the street.

About 150 eager fans were on Hardy Street, outside Everyman Records waiting to buy tickets when it opened at 8am today. They started before sunrise this morning, and by 6.30am about thirty people, rugged up from the cold, were sitting on the pavement.

Everyman Records was the only place in Nelson selling general release tickets available in person this morning after online pre-sale tickets sold out nation-wide within minutes on Tuesday.

Conchords fly in to a full house
21/06/2012

Fans snapped up tickets when the Flight of the Conchords announced their national tour, with Nelson no exception.

Sold out in almost every venue – and three times over in their home town, Wellington – Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie will play to a packed house at Nelson's Trafalgar Centre on Wednesday night. The pair last played here at Neudorf Vineyards in 2006, but they'll return as heroes. United States comedian Arj Barker, who played pawnshop owner Dave in the Conchords' hit HBO show, will appear as a special guest.

Since their underground beginnings as students at Victoria University, the Conchords have reached unmatched heights: an Oscar for McKenzie, an Emmy nomination for Clement, a Grammy win for both, a Simpsons cameo, and Clement's acting stints in Hollywood films Despicable Me and Men In Black III.

There are some other pics posted on Twitter from last night's show but they're pretty blurry and from far away so I'm not posting them. :P

Business time for Conchord fans
Review: Flight of the Conchords Nelson show
VICTORIA GUILD
Last updated 08:25 28/06/2012

The lighting guy Alex set the mood. Nigel from the "New Zealand Sympathy Orchestra" joined in, but there was no doubt who the real mega stars perfoming in front of a sold-out NElson were - Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement.

It's weird to think of the two New Zealanders behind Flight of the Conchords as mega stars.

After all they seem like a couple of guys from down the road who play the guitar and make up funny lyrics.
Well, that's exactly what they are, but now they have two HBO series and a swag of awards under their belts.

Yeah man, they are mega stars, even British comedian Lenny Henry likes them.

The thing is, when they talk about being excited to get a complimentary muffin in their hotel room, you almost believe it.

One thing that's not difficult to believe is how they've got this far given their incredible talented, both as musicians and as comedians.

Flight of the Conchords have an understated kind of humour and they met their match at the Trafalgar Centre last night with a typically Nelson understated kind of audience - ''mellow'' was how warm-up act Arj Barker described us.

Barker was here last year on a solo tour, and while he used some of the same material from that show, his set was tight and offered up plenty of laughs to get the crowd in the mood.

From the opening boogie Too Many Dicks (on the dancefloor) to the closing Sugalumps - yes there is a bit of a theme there - the Conchords showed the polish of many years performing together.

Sure there were a few equipment hiccups and loud female interjections, but comedy is forgiving and allows for ad libbing.

Many are familiar with their music from their TV show, but it doesn't matter how many times you've heard the songs (or watched them) you still pick up some new lines that make you laugh, or remember how bloody funny it was the first time you heard it.

Nothing beats Business Time for me, but there was also time to bring in a local reference to The Most Beautiful Girl (in the Room), ''You could be a waitress at Devilles''.

It was great to hear Bus Driver, the love-torn Tony lamenting his missed opportunity with the girl-next-door Paula, and the Pet Shop Boys-esque of Inner City Pressure.

There was some fresh material, Sex Tips, and the opportunity for the glammed up pair to channel David Bowie and turn into a metal rock band with Demon Woman.

Wow man, we got to see some mega stars in Nelson.

And they were great.
