The country music stars will play one show only at Wellington's Westpac Stadium, for what will also be Underwood's first time playing here.

This is Urban's first worldwide tour in nearly three years, and it's been getting rave reviews around the world, but the singer, originally from New Zealand, is stoked to be coming home.

"I'm so psyched about finally getting to play a real show in the country of my birth," he says.

"The last time I played music there, I was in a duo playing every weekend at a pub called the DB Onerahi in Whangarei, and I was 17. This is going to be an amazing feeling."

Urban and Underwood will play Westpac Stadium on December 3.

Tickets go on sale at 12pm Friday, June 24 via Ticketek. Presale starts 9am, June 22 - see visaentertainment.co.nz for details.
