Flight of the Conchords, the New Zealand folk comedy duo, will be coming to Europe for a 15-stop tour with dates in the Netherlands, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Ireland, and the UK. Jemaine and Bret will be joined by co-stars Kristen Schall (fan-turned-stalker Mel) and Arj Barker (shop owner Dave).
That’s awesome news, right?
Well, kind of. Maybe it’s good news for the lucky ones who got tickets, but us mere mortals won’t make it.
Here’s what happened. Tickets went on sale at 9:00 today. And by… I don’t know… 9:00 they were sold out (at least the Dublin and London dates). I know that because I was at the the bloody ticketmaster page refreshing it over and over again, and still all the tickets were gone as soon as the “Find tickets” button showed up. How that happened I don’t know, but it’s very frustrating that I didn’t even get a chance. Kudos for the Conchords for having such loyal fans (maybe the tickets were all bought in the Fan Club pre-sale).
As usual, some tickets are already showing up on eBay and other such sites. For 3 times their original price. I feel like shooting those people…
