Kiwi comedy duo Flight of the Conchords are getting ready for a massive nationwide tour of the United States - but New Zealand fans are out of luck.

Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie are heading to the States in June for a massive run of shows. They kick off in Cleveland on June 11, and finish up in Los Angeles on July 27.

Here's their cool new tour poster:

But there's no news that the Grammy-winning pair will be returning to New Zealand at all to perform.

Pitchfork revealed that the musical act will be using the American tour to "road-test" new material.

"I'm thrilled to get back on the road with over half the original band," McKenzie said about the upcoming Flight of the Conchords sing Flight of the Conchords Tour.

The act made it big with hilarious hits like Business Time and Most Beautiful Girl, which earned them a TV show on HBO.

The Conchords haven't played together since the Funny or Die Oddball Festival in 2013 and haven't performed in New Zealand since 2012.

Kiwi fans are no-doubt eager to experience the band's new material, but at this stage, fans may have to book a flight to the USA to catch the Conchords live in concert.
