CREATIVE DUO: Flight of the Conchords' Jemaine Clement, left, and Bret McKenzie at the Michael Fowler Centre, in their first Wellington appearance on a national tour.
The hometown Flight of the Conchords boys, Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, returned to the capital last night for the first of four Wellington concerts on their first national tour.
The award-winning pair, who sold out Wellington's 1700-seat Michael Fowler Centre three times over, played lots of new and funny material, said 25-year-old Irishman Conor Loughran.
Jeff Harris, self-employed, from Ngaio, said: "They're an international act and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves."
Anthony Pratt, an Auckland builder, and Thirza Moors, a policy analyst, both said the show was very creative. "They're very talented, and the number of musical instruments they played was amazing," Ms Moors said.
Clement and McKenzie have performed at the landmark Hollywood Bowl, New York's Radio City Music Hall and London's Wembley Arena.
On this tour they have already performed in Hawke's Bay, Hamilton, Auckland and New Plymouth.
Comedian Arj Barker provided the warm-up act.
The band will perform the final show of their tour at TSB Bank Arena on Monday July 2.
