McKenzie – who performs with Jemaine Clement in the musical group – announced on Twitter that a fall down the stairs means he would not be able to play for “several weeks”, but that he would return after regaining “two fully functioning hands”.

Clement also took to Twitter to wish Bret the best…

A statement on the band’s website also reads: “Due to a hand injury that Bret McKenzie has suffered, Metropolis Music, Live Nation Entertainment, Chambers Touring and Flight of the Conchords regrettably announce the postponement and imminent rescheduling of the Flight of the Conchords Sing Flight of the Conchords tour.

“Bret and Jemaine are extremely sorry and deeply saddened that they cannot perform for their UK fans, who have waited so patiently.
