Flight of the Conchords have announced a couple of extra shows for their tour of the UK and Ireland.

After selling out the rest of their dates in a matter of minutes, the popular duo will play the Manchester Apollo on May 8 and Wembley Arena on May 25. Tickets on sale Friday, March 12 from 9am.

They will be supported in Birmingham, Dublin and Manchester by Kristen Schaal who plays the boys’ biggest (and only) fan in their popular HBO series.

Arj Barker, who plays pawnshop worker Dave, will open the London shows.

Jermaine Clement said he and fellow Conchord Bret Mckenzie were looking forward to playing in the UK again after a lengthy hiatus.

“In some ways you could say we got our start there, and we were always over at the U.K’s house. But then one night, some heated words were said and Flight of the Conchords left in a huff.

“We haven’t been back since. That was five years ago. Now, we’re coming back to say we’re sorry.”
