Flight of the Conchords play surprise Wellington gig

FLYING IN: Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie of Flight of the Conchords played the Fringe Bar last night.

They have sold out Wembley Arena - but last night Flight of the Conchords were content to play to just 135 lucky fans.

The Wellington comedy duo made a surprise appearance at a musical comedy gig in the capital.

Last month it was revealed they had sold out the 12,500-capacity London stadium and had added dates to their upcoming tour. They will play Wembley next month, as well as touring Holland, Sweden, Norway and Denmark.

Last night Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement strode out to play in front of another sold-out crowd - of 135 - at Fringe Bar, in Cuba St.

While resale tickets for the sold- out British shows fetch between $200 and $480 on the internet, last night's door entry was just $12.

The Lemon Barley Trio introduced them as "the next Lemon Barley Trio but others know them as Flight of the Conchords".

The crowd cheered as the pair declared the event was a warm-up for Wembley. They said their show had a few "rough patches - we're going to fly over to London, change the batteries and do a big show".

They opened with their hit The Most Beautiful Girl In The World but modified it with "you're the most beautiful girl in the Fringe Bar".

Clement gently put his audience down, declaring some of their Wembley material was not for a crowd as small as the Fringe's.

When word of the gig spread early last night, dozens of people turned up, only to be turned away.

Flight of the Conchords were a late substitute for singer Gabriel Page, who was to be the night's final act. He was told he would have to make way for the inspirational duo.

Page, 24, said he had been compared to Flight of the Conchords so "for once it's quite nice to actually be in their shadow".

Conchords fan Hannah Fraser arrived at the Fringe with two friends just as the concert sold out.

Ms Fraser, 28, received a text message about the band's appearance from a friend, who heard it discussed on a radio station about 7pm. "If only we'd come down sooner. If only we'd known about it."
