And this one is a benefit for Christchurch, which as we know was devastated by an earthquake a little over a year ago.

...This June is business time. The Flight of the Conchords will perform at the CBS Canterbury Arena on Tuesday, June 26.

The "almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand", comprising Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, will donate all proceeds from ticket sales from their Christchurch show, after costs, to a Christchurch charity that will be announced soon.

All tickets are $50 and no pre-sale tickets are available.

Full Article here.

Kudos, Bret and Jemaine. :supz:

Yowza, I love that photo of them together. :heart:

Yay! I wondered if they'd make it a benefit and I'm not at all surprised to see that they did. :thumb: They're so great... :love:

Most other bands, like those other three-most-popular Folk Bands, would probably be charging much higher ticket prices, but the guys want their fans to be able to afford to come see them. 8)

I could have sworn that in the original the background was different. I thought they photoshopped them into a Christchurch steet or something but nah, I was wrong. I wish Bret would just put his arm on J's shoulder already, you know he wants to.

You know, I totally didn't realise it wasn't actually on his shoulder until you said that SW! :lol:

It would be cool if the little devil with pitchfork was a few inches lower and standing on J's other shoulder. :devil:

I too thought that picture was photoshopped..but I was thinking about this one, taken the same day:

But if you did I'd hold you tight / Into every single night
And we'd fall asleep together / And we'd wake up in the sunlight
Well, maybe I'm a dreamer / But maybe one day you'll see / That dreams are...

Actually they're both Wellington. The top one is the corner of Willis & Bond, the second one Willis & Boulcott. I thought I recognized them but just went to street-view and confirmed.
And I totally didn't notice that little red devil either. :doh: Perfect! A devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other! :lol:

And I love that this gig is a benefit for ChCh. :heart:

I never knew those two photos were taken on the same day. :)

Google says the CBS Canterbury Arena in ChCh can seat up to 9000! If the Conchords can fill that thing, it will be one hell of a fundraiser and a whole lot of fun as well. :supz:

Well Vector seats 10,000+ and they're expecting to fill that twice over! (Plus the town hall). Mind you Aucks is considerably bigger than Christchurch, but then Chch is the biggest city on the South Island (at least it was before tons of people that were evacuated decided not to go back and many others started to leave because they couldn't handle the constant shaking).

And the queueing for ChCh begins!

Thems my kind of people. :supz: 20+ hours of waiting, impressive. :clap: I hope they get front row - center.

I hope the response is good and the Conchords easily fill the CBS Arena.

Um I think the response was good. Check out the box office queue 20mins before it opened... And that's just for the presale!
