Pink Floyd rock legend Roger Waters has two reasons to return to Kiwi shores - music and fishing.

The writer and producer of 1980s album The Wall is bringing the live show to New Zealand in February as part of a tour to North America, Europe and Australasia.

As well as getting on stage for a Kiwi audience, the fishing fanatic was excited about hooking some local trout.

"We had an absolutely fantastic time last time," said tour manager Trip Khalaf of the time spent with guide Lindsay Lyons. They hoped to catch up with him again on this visit, said Khalaf.

Meanwhile, a third show has been added to Waters' upcoming tour in Auckland because of pre-sale demand. Tickets for general sale at all three shows on February 20, 22 and 23 go on sale at 9am tomorrow.
