Rihanna will perform two shows in New Zealand, it has been confirmed.

The pop star initially announced just one date on October 6, but overwhelming demand for pre-sale tickets has seen a second show announced for the following night, October 7.

Pre-sales for both shows are available through Ticketmaster on March 20 at 4pm, with the general release beginning March 22 at 9am.

The Barbados-born, Los Angeles-based singer released debut album, Music of the Sun, in 2005 after being signed to iconic label Def Jam by then president Jay-Z.

Since then she has released an album every year, including 2007 classic Good Girl Gone Bad, which included Umbrella and the Justin Timberlake-penned Rehab.

She last performed in New Zealand with her boyfriend Chris Brown in 2008.

Who: Rihanna
Where: Vector Arena, Auckland
When: October 6 & 7
