"I called up the FOTC management and they told me that they could not confirm the dates in 2010 but did tell me that they were something that they wanted to do, so the NME were pre empting things as usual but it does look like theres a good chance of this coming true."
TBH I've never found the Conchords UK management company very helpful. And if contacted they are always going to be very non commital about a possible 2010 tour. Until its in the bag, signed, sealed and ready to deliver. Then it'll be doing the press rounds very quickly.
They manange some big comedy names with high profiles. The Conchords have been with them a long time so can't see much changing between now and whenever gigs are decided upon.
I think there is every chance the Conchords will tour the UK in 2010. And possibly elsewhere in Europe. If I were a betting person I'd be inclined to think it'd be the summer season and they'd do some festivals and stuff also. Who knows, maybe an all new show to unveil at the Edinburgh Fringe. I think middle of winter or early spring is not going to happen. Those are just my thoughts, I've had nothing to indicate this
I agree Sherry. It is much more likely for them to perform in the summer which will open up the opportunity of playing at various British festivals just as long as they don't have any other prior arrangements for that summer.
May (especially mid-late May) would be a tricky time for me but other months should be okay
