Unfortunately New Zealand band Flight of the Conchords have had to cancel their upcoming UK tour because of an unfortunate accident that Bret McKenzie suffered over the weekend.

The comedic singer/songwriter injured his hand while walking down a flight of stairs.

The unfortunate news was posted a few days ago over on the official Flight of the Conchords website. You can read the full announcement down below. 

Due to a hand injury that Bret McKenzie has suffered, Metropolis Music, Live Nation Entertainment, Chambers Touring & 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 U.K. fans, who have waited so patiently.

“Unfortunately I’ve broken two bones in my hand today in a very rock ‘n’ roll injury – falling down some stairs. The doctors have informed me that I won’t be able to perform for several weeks. I’m sorry not to be able to do these upcoming shows but I’m looking forward to coming back and finishing the tour when I have two fully functioning hands.” – Bret McKenzie.

Information will be posted at a later date for those that bought tickets. The shows will now have to be postponed until Bret McKenzie is able to make a full recovery. 

This is sad considering this would have been the first time in seven years that the Flight of the Conchords will be doing a live tour over in the UK. Hopefully Bret McKenzie gets a speedy recovery so that ticket holders can see him perform live. 

The UK tour is not the only thing the band has planned for later this year. It's speculated a TV special will be held later this year too airing on HBO.
