The FOTC Fanbase Tour 2009 and Tour 2008 Archive

Hello all,

Some of you might already know me...

I just wanted to tell you about a project I've been working on and that has just gone live.

It's a searchable archive of all videos from the Conchords North American 2009 tour.

Further explanation from the front page:

3 ways to use this archive:

If you are looking for a particular show to browse, the Want to find a show? page is a good place to start.

If you are looking for all versions of a particular song performed, then you probably want the Want to find a song? page.

If you are looking for a particular piece of banter or something that happened or that was mentioned in the shows, please use the Search box to the right.

I have been as detailed as possible with cataloguing the videos. Below are some examples to show what you can find. The search terms have been linked to show how the search works:

Which show did Bret use a sombrero? (Dallas)
When did they banter about Conchords radio? (Orlando)
Which performances of Sugalumps did Jemaine do his bicycle exercises? (Madison and Phoenix)
In which show did Bret’s toy piano break? (New York 15th)
When did they receive an emergency blanket as a gift? (Chicago 28th)
Which city reminded them of a soap opera? (Santa Barbara)
When was Richie Sambora’s girdle mentioned? (Las Vegas)
Which show had the mention of a sponge? (Toronto 21st)
When did Bret look like a giant Elton John? (Boston)
Which venue had optional stairways to heaven? (Los Angeles)

I have tried to make this archive as comprehensive as possible.


The page links and search links are found on the front page of the website, so I won't put them here in the quote.

I thought you may find it useful to find particular videos or moments from the tour.

It can be found here:

Yeah, some people have said that. :(

The Want to find a show and Want to find a song pages are there for that reason. The categories were more just for my reference when creating the archive. I think I might remove them and keep with just the show and song pages.

Thanks for looking.

From the front page:

Welcome to the Tour 2008 Archive

This is an archive of videos from the Flight of the Conchords 2008 tour of North America and their other appearances during 2008.

3 ways to use this archive:

If you are looking for a particular show to browse, the Want to find a show? page is a good place to start.

If you are looking for all versions of a particular song performed, then you probably want the Want to find a song? page.

If you are looking for a particular piece of banter or something that happened or was mentioned in the shows, please use the Search box to the right.

I have been as detailed as possible with cataloguing the videos. Below are some examples to show what you can find. The search terms have been linked to show how the search works:

Which city had a audience full of cyborgs? (Salt Lake City)
In which show did Bret become the Silentbot5000? (SP20 Festival)
When was a shaving brush mentioned? (Washington – late show)
In which show did they mention being hung upside down and being hug addicts? (SP20 Festival)
When did Bret sing a snippet of the song from the Tongan Ninja credits? (Washington – late show)
What does Bret think Rhys Darby would call his autobiography? (Gingerballs)
Where did Jemaine complain about a thing making his voice loud? (Sasquatch)
When was the lighting described as portholes? (Los Angeles – June 1st)

I have tried to make this archive as comprehensive as possible.


The links are all on the Tour 2008 homepage. The main 2008 tour is archived and all their other appearances in 2008 such as Aro, Amoeba, Northwestern, CES, Google I/O, Omniture and so on...

Hope you find it useful.
