So some of you may have noticed that FOTC's Facebook page has recently been updated with a couple new photo albums of a few photoshoot pics we've seen before and a new profile pic. Preparing for an announcement of their upcoming tour dates in NZ and Australia? :D

I noticed this too and at first I thought I was looking at a fan Facebook site or something! I checked their other pages, someone logged into their MySpace on Feb 3, seems like things are going to happen! :D

Wouldn't that be amazing?!?!? :D It's hard to tell from Bret's comments, but maybe they'll try to get the tour in before winter hits down under? The thought of the tour itself is such great news, but it's even more exciting to know that the time together will allow them to write new songs! :heart: (then tour America!!!) :thumb:

Towards the end of last year Bret mentioned that they were planning on touring within the "next 6 months" so it seems likely that they could tour in the first half of this year. Information is a bit scarce but I do like how Bret is mentioning the tour in his recent interviews so it seems that both him and Jemaine have found the time to go on tour. I hope WTF! will be well represented at their Antipodean gigs. How exciting for you, kipples! :D

I see FOTC have now linked their Facebook posts to their Twitter account. :)

So should I start clearing out the spare room for the WTF contingency to bunk down in for the Australian leg of the tour??? :D I have already warned my mum.... "I don't care when, where and how much.... I will be there... If I have to hitch, swim, walk, I'm going!!! Can you mind the kids?" :supz:

Haha, awesome! Can't wait to hear back from you and everyone else planning on attending FOTC's upcoming tour! :supz:

Coincidentally two of this year's nominees will leave L.A. for New Zealand the day after the ceremony. Howard Shore heads back to work with Peter Jackson on "The Hobbit" and song nominee McKenzie returns home to begin rehearsals on a Flight of the Conchords tour of New Zealand and Australia this summer.

I assume they're talking about the US/UK summer since Bret's planning on rehearsing already but this article by The Daily Telegraph AU states that we should expect concert dates to be posted on FOTC's website later in the year, whenever that is. Exciting! :D

They are confusing us a bit with the timeframe but at least we know it will happen and it will happen this year. I'm betting on our autumn but then why rehearse so soon? Hmmmm...

I just listened to Bret's dad on Radio NZ here and he said a NZ/Australia tour will be going on later this year and that it was scheduled for April/May but acknowledged that it may be pushed back a little bit. During Bret's interview, he said him and Jemaine are planning on writing songs within the next couple of months.

Agreed, it's still great to at least know that they will be touring this year regardless of when exactly it will be. :D

Oh good - I didn't think they were going to have any new songs, because of Bret's comment about not wanting to tour the US again until they had new material. Hey, maybe this means they'll play some US dates! ;)

Well they did add the US on to the European tour last time so you never know. I'm hoping the UK is added on this time round. ;) Australia and NZ deserve to see FOTC live again so I don't mind waiting and I don't think we'll be waiting too long for them to return to the UK & US.

Just noticed that their site has been updated congratulating Bret on his Oscar win. :)

Sweet! I left a comment. 8) (we'll see if it makes it through moderation) :purple:

*sigh* Now begins the constant refreshing of the "On Tour" tab of their website. :type: So exciting! :D I hope you're right, mock - and that new songs indicate some US dates!!! I'm sure Bret is itching to write with Jemaine so that when they inevitably argue which chord to use, he can play his "Oscar card". :lol:
