Alisa Xayalith of The Naked and Famous will be back in New Zealand in May.

On the back of an electrifying return to the Big Day Out last month, The Naked and Famous will return home for one show only.

The Killing Giants hit makers will perform at Auckland's Powerstation on May 16. It will be The Naked and Famous' first hometown headlining show in two years.

The band, who released their second album, In Rolling Waves, last year, now call Los Angeles home. They are currently supporting Imagine Dragons on a 22-date tour around America, and the five-piece will perform at both weekends of the Coachella Festival in April.

Thrust into the limelight in 2010 on the back of hit single Young Blood, which has sold more than two million copies, The Naked and Famous have been touring for the past four years, stopping only to record the self-produced second album.

Tickets go on pre-sale through Ticketmaster from February 27.

And due to popular demand, Scottish funnyman Billy Connolly has added a second Auckland show to his High Horse tour in April.

Tickets are still available for the first show at Vector Arena on April 12, but demand for some seating areas has been so high, an extra night has been added for April 13.

Tickets for both of Connolly's shows will be on sale through Ticketmaster from February 25.
