Flight of the Conchords announce 3rd Vector Arena show
Wednesday, 20 June, 2012 - 18:46
Talk about 'Inner City Pressure'! It's officially the biggest ever tour by a New Zealand artist and it's about to get bigger! Pressure for seats around the country when the tour first announced forced promoters to announce a Vector Arena show, which sold out? then another Vector Arena show? which sold out?
The tour started to rave reviews. The band are being stopped in the street everywhere they go and being asked to add more dates, so they have bowed to inner city pressure and added a third and final show at Vector Arena!
Squeezing in this new Vector Arena show between sold out shows on Friday and Sunday gives out-of-town fans the chance to make a weekend of it, with local hotels already coming to the party with great special rates for visitors to the city. Travelling from the North or the Naki, this show offers a great chance for unlucky fans that missed out on the initial ticket frenzy.
The home-town Wellington's TSB Bank Arena was put in to ease the Wellington pressure after three Michael Fowler shows sold out in a week and last week's ticket release was snapped up. So, in response to nationwide demand, this Vector Arena show will be the final announcement of the tour - there are simply no dates left to play!

Fans and critics alike are clapping and cheering and saying things like?
"Seeing them live proves their comedic and musical genius doesn't come from successful television editing. Their unique and refreshing low-key, deadpan humour is pitch-perfect. They bounce off each other like Lennon and McCartney and their musical ability isn't a far cry from them either." Robyn McLean / http://www.stuff.co.nz
"For almost two hours of stop-start, awkwardly funny, chaotic entertainment, FOTC ensured there was never really a dull moment." Michelle Robinson / http://www.aucklandnow.co.nz
"?.a performance that lived up to every expectation." Russell Baillie / NZ Herald
"Catch this unmissable tour if you can, but don't let your enthusiasm get the better of you. Those goldfish are terribly difficult to remove." Guy Somerset / the Listener
"I thought the show was bloody brilliant! Loved the new songs and of course all the ones we know and love ?.an absolutely wonderful night, definitely was worth postponing my wedding for!" Tiffany Elouise McKee / A fan from Mt Albert, Auckland
This is now (unofficially) the most successfully attended tour by any New Zealand born folk duo this decade and will see Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement back performing with their American buddy Arj Barker as support.
"What are you waiting for? An extra show in your living room?" says Arj. "Don't be a dick! Get your ticket today."
If you live outside of Auckland and missed seeing Flight of the Conchords live in your home town, now's your chance to book a fantastic weekend away -
