Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Bonnie Raitt will give Kiwi country fans something to talk about next year, as she's set to head back to New Zealand for two shows in April - donating all profits to a local Kiwi charity.

The tour, which celebrates her 20th album Dig In Deep, has seen the singer sell out shows across the world this year.

Kiwi-born singer songwriter Jackie Bristow will open the NZ leg of the tour, which touches down in Wellington on March 29 at the St James Theatre and Auckland's Civic Theatre on April 1.

Raitt will be joined by her touring band of James 'Hutch' Hutchinson on bass, Ricky Fataar on drums, George Marinelli on guitar and Mike Finnigan on keyboard and vocals.

And if that's not enough to impress, the blues legend will donate all profits from her NZ shows to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
