Fresh from their widely acclaimed appearance at Coachella this week, The Naked and Famous have added a second night at the Powerstation on Saturday May 17, the night after the band's homecoming Friday show.

The Friday night show is sold out. Tickets go on sale for the new show next Thursday.

Also returning to town is everyone's favourite redhead, Ed Sheeran. After opening for Taylor Swift and selling out Madison Square Garden in three minutes, the I See Fire singer will perform at Auckland's ASB Theatre on April 30.

The show will be presented by iHeartRadio, which means fans must register for tickets at www.iHeartRadio.co.nz before lunchtime today to be in to win.

Finally, if you're under the age of six it's time to get excited: The Wiggles are returning to New Zealand.

They'll perform 11 dates throughout July: Tauranga's Baycourt Community and Arts Centre on July 2; Whangarei's Riverbanks Centre on July 3; Auckland's ASB Theatre on July 5; Hamilton's Founders Theatre on July 6; Rotorua's Civic Theatre on July 7; Taupo Theatre on July 8; New Plymouth's TSB Theatre on July 9; Napier's Munciple Theatre on July 11; Wellington's St James Theatre on July 12; Dunedin's Regent Theatre on July 15; and Christchurch's Charles Luney Auditorium on July 16.
