Good one biscuit! It's spelt 'Folkteatern' on FOTC's website aswell. I hope it is corrected in time. :)

I told the guy that I gathered he had been given the wrong name from the tour management, and he confirmed that :nod:

I sent an e-mail to the management as well. I feel like such a nerd but it sort of makes you feel like they can't be bothered to check when they make silly mistakes like that. :tsk:

Haha, yeah you might as well point it out to them as well. :nod:

I re-tweeted @MsEmmaMorgan's tweet to @ollymoss (the designer) and he replied "creative license! :) " so it doesn't seem to phase him. :lol: Although it looks kinda odd to me now that it's been pointed out!

Now its been pointed out, it looks really wrong to me. I didn't notice before and it didn't jar. Now it does. Its still a great poster, one of my favourites, but it looks wrong.

Exactly! :nod: I still love the overall design and I might end up buying it but I now see it in a different light.

I'm totally perplexed by the pink and white Storm Trooper helmet with knife and fork and chef's hat on it. I'm trying to figure it out. Can anyone enlighten me?

The only thing I can come up with is the quote 'she's a pastry chef and a sniper'. I don't know much about warfare though. :dunno:

But a Storm Trooper helmet?

I don't like that one at all I'm afraid. I find it really wrong for a Conchords poster.

Yep, not sure about the connection between a storm trooper helmet and a sniper. :dunno:

Has anyone come up with an explanation for May 17th's London poster yet? :lol:

It's very old school 1950/60s record sleeve and concert poster to me, Venus.

Am I the only one that loves the May 10th Birmingham poster? I really like the minimalistic quality of it and I think the baby B & J kiwi birds hatching out of a music note is quite brilliant/adorable.

The Oslo poster will be fixed.

As for the subject matter questions, the band is cool enough that they let the designers make posters just as they would for any other band. In other words, not everything has to be directly tied to a song or show moment, some of them are just simply allowed to look cool.

As I've posted these across the internet, I think it's great how almost everybody has a different favorite. I think the variety on these came out awesome, something for everyone.

Yes, it is cool to see the variety of different designs of each poster. It's a great collection. 8)

OK. No, you're definitely not the only one because I love it too and I'm planning on buying it when I attend the concert next week. :)

That's going to look beautiful in a frame and up on the wall, Venus! Maybe you would take a silver or gold sharpie to the show just in case you can get them to sign it.

:nod: Haha, yes I've also been thinking about the type of sharpie they'll have to use if I was to get them to sign it. :lol: I'll see if I can find one. :)

No, I absolutely adore that one as well. It's up there with the Legos, Sexy Snake, and the Vikings.
I just love the range of posters. Refreshingly imaginative.
