Just saw the Flight of the Conchords at their concert in Christchurch. New songs, great stuff. But Nigel, from the New Zealand Sympathy Orchestra, was the real star (you can see his big fluffy hair in the foreground of the photo. He’s playing the cello).

It was an absolutely amazing night. No free pencils though.

Conchords go off!
Big laughs from a huge crowd

More than 7000 Cantabrians screamed when Flight of the Conchords duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement ripped off their clothes and revealed spangly, skin- tight leotards for their final number on Tuesday evening.

Packed into the CBS Arena for a sold-out show, the now-famous, almost award-winning pair did not disappoint.

The headline act followed comedian Arj Barker with two hours of high energy entertainment centred around their quirky songs, new and old.

Well known classic, Business Time and Tears of a Rapper were particularly well received.

The pair's signature deadpan comedy included comparison between being stuck in an elevator and living in Christchurch. Earthquake the epileptic dog and stories about the band's touring antics were the perfect segues between songs.

Seven thousand people will never look at muffins the same again.

Backup musician Nigel Collins aka The Sympathy Orchestra was seamless in his faux tuxedo, cello in hand. By the end of the first hour he had groupies in the front row.

Having "learned a few things" from the recent Lady Gaga tour, the team engaged in several not-so- smooth costume changes which saw Bret McKenzie topless in a spotlight for a brief moment and wearing robot heads for the opening number.

The rock star leotards sent the crowd in raptures and the final song was met with stamping feet and wolf whistles.

Two hours proved not enough for the audience who demanded an encore.

I thought that was a typo the first time I read it, but it's everywhere.

That gave me Hollywood Bowl flashbacks. But I think I was the only person here that saw that.

Hollywood Bowl flashbacks are the best flashbacks. #cloud9#

And if only one of us got to see that, I'm glad it was you. ;D #glomp#
