Music fans get excited - PJ Harvey is heading to New Zealand.

The English singer-songwriter will perform two concerts for her Kiwi fans in January next year.

She will be performing at Auckland's Logan Campbell Centre on January 24 and at Wellington's Michael Fowler Centre on January 25 .

This is the first time Harvey has toured in New Zealand since 2012.

Harvey - known for her songs This Is Love and Down By The Water - will be sharing new songs from her latest album, The Hope Six Demolition Project.

The record, which was released earlier this year, is the ninth studio album for Harvey and features the songs The Community of Hope and The Wheel.

The rocker will always be accompanied by a full 10-piece band for her shows.

Rolling Stones magazine praised Harvey's performance during her US leg of her tour, writing: "By the time the night was done the audience called for an encore, and when that was done, it screamed for another, chanting and clapping until well after Harvey's microphone was removed. The show is that good."

New Zealand fans should be in for a treat.

Tickets will be available from Thursday, September 1. For more information visit nztix.co.nz and ticketek.co.nz
