Flight of the Conchords schedules spring tour

NEW YORK (Billboard) - New Zealand musical comedy duo Flight of the Conchords will embark on an extensive North American tour this spring, beginning April 6 in Tampa, Fla.

Highlights of the itinerary include New York’s Radio City Music Hall, Red Rocks outside Denver and the Santa Barbara Bowl in Southern California.

The outing begins as the second season of the HBO series “Flight of the Conchords” concludes, and as the duo’s second full-length album is released on Sub Pop. Further details, including an album title and release date, are still being nailed down.

Flight of the Conchords is up for the best comedy album Grammy for its 2008 self-titled full-length debut. The group won that honor last year for its EP “The Distant Future.”
