Cool shirt! Are they doing different posters for each venue like they did in the Uniteds?

That red shirt looks new too. I think I can see a poster of some sort in the background in the first pic of Arj at the merch stand but I haven't seen any proper pics of posters yet. Hope so!

ETA: Oh wait, there a tour poster! Looks like the same one in the pic at the Auckland gig and this poster was bought at the New Plymouth show. Thanks to totescokes:

Cool! I want to see it bigger to see all the little details. :) So it's just the one for the whole tour, looks like.

It seems to only say "New Zealand Tour" so the Australian one could be a different design. :)

An article about merch:

Conchords fans go for undies and tea towels

FANCY PANTS: Antonia Wano, of New Plymouth, checks out an example of Flight of the Conchords underwear, which was a big seller pre-show last night.

Not even wintry single-digit temperatures could keep the masses from filling the TSB Showplace for Kiwi comedy sensation Flight of the Conchords last night.

Hundreds of enthusiastic fans of all ages were giddy with excitement as they mingled in and around the theatre in expectation of the big event.

New Plymouth's Hamish Wright was one of many eager to see the dynamic duo of Academy Award winner Bret McKenzie and Emmy nominated Jemaine Clement for the first time.

"I've been part of a Facebook group for four years campaigning to see them here and that day has finally arrived," he said.

The self-confessed first-time viewer but long-time listener was expecting the performance to be at least a 16 out of 17.

"I'm pretty sure Jemaine likes prime numbers so it wouldn't be a scale of one to ten for them," he said. "I think 17 is a good prime number and it's likely they'll be at least a 16."

The full house crowd were treated to some special Flight of the Conchords merchandise on arrival and it wasn't the T-shirts that were flying off the table.

Merchandise salesman Rowan Johnston said the tea towels and unisex underpants seemed to be the biggest hit.

"We only got the tea towels and undies tonight and they're basically sold out," Mr Johnston said.

It was predominantly young males who bought the underwear but when it came to the tea towels anyone and everyone was after one.

Stocking up on a few items was TSB Community Trust chairman and Flight of the Conchords fan Hayden Wano and his wife, Antonia.

"My sister-in-law saw them in Edinburgh and said they were brilliant so we made sure we got tickets," Mr Wano said. "It's great for the community to get something as big as this."

Ah, I remember when the tea towels sold out before the FOTC show I went to at the Hammersmith Apollo and Empire Magazine accused Jude Law who was in attendance of swiping them all. Good times. :lol:

I just meant 1 poster for the NZ tour instead of 1 for each venue. I guess it'll be the same for the Aussies....bummer.

I mean, it's a nice poster and I'm sure the AUS one will be as well but it would be cool if they did what they did here. Maybe they feel that'll be looked as being too flashy.

Agreed, I like that poster but it is a shame that there won't be individual gig posters at least during the NZ tour because I was looking forward to seeing them too. Guess we'll see what happens during the Aussie tour.

Hmmm... I saw something on Twitter a while back that was a picture of them riding a Kiwi - I thought at the time it was a poster but clearly not! (I had meant to save it and post it but, you know, I'm slack!)
I wonder what that was? Did anyone else see it? I'll try and find it again...

I really like the Australian tour poster too. It looks like it was designed by Jason Munn/The Small Stakes who designed the Birmingham 2010 tour poster (which Bret & Jemaine signed for me :heart:) & the Las Vegas 2010 poster. :)
