Good news for fans as Flight of the Conchord tickets are still available for an extra Auckland show.

Flight of the Conchords fans have a final chance to see the duo live during their countrywide tour with tickets still available for an extra Auckland show.

Jemaine Clement and Oscar winner Bret McKenzie initially scheduled one show at the Auckland Town Hall, but pressure for tickets prompted them to add two shows at Vector Arena, both of which have sold out.

A fourth Auckland show was listed last week and half the tickets to the show this Saturday have been sold, promoters said.

BUSINESS TIME: Flight of the Conchords bring their unique brand of musical comedy to Vector Arena this week.

Publicity manger Leesa Tilley said she wouldn't be surprised if the remaining show sold out too.

''The demand has been huge, it's selling very well,'' she said.

''The band are being stopped in the street everywhere they go and being asked to add more dates, so they have bowed to inner city pressure and added a third and final show at Vector Arena,'' promoters said.

"Squeezing in this new Vector Arena show between sold-out shows on Friday and Sunday gives out-of-town fans the chance to make a weekend of it."

Promoters said the third Vector concert would be the last date added to the tour.
