Rising Houston rapper Travis Scott will play his first New Zealand show in October.

Scott, who released his debut album Rodeo last year, will perform at Auckland's Powerstation on October 4.

The 24-year-old sparked a wave of hyped with his debut mixtape Days Before Rodeo, a thugged out exercise in woozy mood rap.

The hype culminated in a performance at Lollapalooza that almost caused a riot.

His second album, Birds in the Trap Sing McKnight, is due out this month.

Travis Scott's debut show here adds to a packed concert schedule for hip-hop fans at the end of the year, with A$AP Ferg and Skepta performing in September, and Schoolboy Q in November.

Tickets for Travis Scott go on sale on July 27. A My Live Nation pre-sale begins on July 25.
