It has been a very topsy-turvy few months for Flight of the Conchords fans.

The New Zealand comedy act, one of whom has an Oscar (seriously, look it up), surprised fans with the news they were returning with a tour and a new one-hour special.

The second (and until now final) season of their HBO show aired all the way back in 2009, and Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie had been busy with other projects in the interim, making the news of the new material and tour a welcome bonus.

However, they were later forced to postpone the bulk of the tour when McKenzie injured himself falling down some stairs. It led to fears they might never get around to performing again, but things are looking up once more.

According to Stereoboard, the tour – originally set to take place in March and April this year – has been moved to June and July.

Tickets for the original dates sold out instantly, leaving some fans distraught, and we imagine some will be hopeful those with tickets for the original dates are now unable to go.

Those who purchased tickets for the 13 remaining UK and Ireland dates (the first eight went off without a hitch before McKenzie’s injury) will be able to use them as normal for the rearranged dates, the first of which takes place at Dublin’s 3Arena on 15 June.

The full list of dates for the rescheduled tour is as follows, alongside the corresponding original dates.

So if you bought a ticket for the 18 March London show, for example, it will now be valid on 2 July.

Dublin 3Arena – 15 June (corresponding date on original tour – 25 March)

Dublin 3Arena – 16 June (2 April)

London the O2 – 20 June (3 April)

London the O2 – 21 June (29 March)
