Shania Twain will tour New Zealand for the first time in December - but she's no stranger.

The country pop sensation, known for hits like Man! I Feel Like a Woman, will perform at Auckland's Spark Arena on December 18 and at Dunedin's Forsyth Barr Stadium on December 22.

The shows will be part of her Now world tour - and they'll be her first time performing in New Zealand.

But Twain is no stranger to our shores, having spent time here on her ex-husband's plot of land in in the mid-2000s.

"I was just so taken with the colours ... it's just stunning. And just the remoteness of some of these high-country stations was attractive to me, I really love being isolated and I love nature," she told NZME about her time here.

Tickets for both shows will go on sale at midday on February 9. A pre-sale begins on February 5.
