Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds will play two New Zealand shows early next year.

The band will perform at Wellington's TSB Bank Arena on Tuesday January 17, and Auckland's Vector Arena the following night, Wednesday January 18.

Tickets go on sale 11am tomorrow (October 27) at nickcave.com.

The band are touring on the back of their brilliant, emotionally devastating new record Skeleton Tree.
