New Zealand comedy duo Flight of the Conchords have postponed their UK tour after member Bret McKenzie suffered some serious hurt feelings – in his hand.
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”.
