As we were discussing in the Flightoftheconchords.co.nz thread, FOTC mentioned on FB that Australia and NZ tour dates will be announced in the next few weeks so use this thread to discuss about general aspects of their upcoming tour. As soon as tour dates are announced, a new thread should be created.
So who's planning on going?

Thursday, March 15, 2012 6:00
Flight of the Concords have announced they'll be touring NZ in June, including a show at the Auckland Town Hall on Saturday June 16.
The musical comedy duo - Bret McKenzie and Jermaine Clement - have sold out tours of the US and Europe, and McKenzie recently scored an Oscar for Best Original Song with Man or Muppet from The Muppets movie.
Their live show has graced the Hollywood Bowl, New York's Radio City Music Hall and London's Wembley Arena but down under it will will be the likes of Founders Theatre Hamilton and the Hawke's Bay Opera House, with two shows for their old home town Wellington, at the Michael Fowler Centre on June 19-20.
Some rather strict ticket sale procedures are in place for the event, which organisers say are to guard against scalping.
Tickets go on sale through Visa presale on Tuesday March 20 at noon-5pm.
The first part of the general sale is on Friday March 20 8am - in person at the box office - two tickets max. 300 of those seats are prime seats. The Auckland location for the box office is The Edge, Level 3, Aotea Centre.
Online and phones sales the begin at midday, 4 tickets max. Tickets are from $55-$79.
