Bret McKenzie won’t be “present” at the Flight Of The Conchords roll call for the time being, as Vulture reports the musician-actor broke his left hand after taking a tumble down some stairs. The co-frontman posted about his injury on the band’s Instagram account, where he also indicated the U.K. and Ireland tour has been postponed until further notice.
“Unfortunately I’ve broken two bones in my hand today in a very rock ‘n’ roll injury—falling down some stairs,” McKenzie wrote beneath a photo of his swaddled hand and bemused face. “The doctors have informed me that I won’t be able to perform for several weeks. I’m sorry not to be able to do these upcoming shows but I’m looking forward to coming back and finishing the tour when I have two fully functioning hands.”
The announcement was also made over at the FOTC website, though news on the “imminent rescheduling” is still unavailable. There were 12 remaining dates on the current tour, including stops in Dublin and London.
UPDATE, 3/26/2018: Flight of the Conchords has released a rescheduled set of tour dates, which will resume in June after McKenzie’s hand is better. The group will honor tickets from previous, rescheduled tour dates at the new, corresponding shows.
