The folk-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords have announced a summer tour, and it will stop at Starlight Theatre on July 7, a Thursday.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday at the Starlight box office, at kcstarlight.com and by calling 816-363-7827.

The New Zealand duo, which comprises Jemaine Clement and Bret McKenzie, won a Grammy award in 2008 for best comedy album and was nominated for seven Emmy awards for the HBO series “Flight of the Conchords.”

They have referred to themselves as “New Zealand’s fourth-most-popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo” for their act, which combines music (folk, rock, hip-hop) with parody and satire.

They have released two full-length studio albums and a live album.
