Flight of the Conchords to Reunite at Newport Folk Festival This Summer
(ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED 2/18/16) After years of speculation and hinting at a possible tour run through North America, New Zealand's finest comedy duo is reuniting this summer. Flight of the Conchords have announced their first show in three years, which will take place at the Newport Folk Festival in Rhode Island on Friday, July 22.
Members Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie have been busy pursuing separate projects over the last several years, including McKenzie's Academy Award-winning work in the 2011 movie The Muppets, but it appears that a full road itinerary is imminent in 2016. A complete tour would mark the band's first extensive run since 2013's Funny or Die Oddball Festival.
