Alicia Keys is joining forces with fellow American R&B superstar John Legend for a one-off Auckland show together in December.

Both will be bringing full bands for the show, at Vector Arena on December 19, as part of the final leg of Keys' Set the World on Fire World Tour.

It will be five years almost to the day since Keys - whose hits include Fallin', If I Ain't Got You and No One - was in Auckland for a show in the same venue that also featured Jordan Sparks.

Legend's hits include the smash ballad Ordinary People, and his most current single Made to Love, which also features Kiwi singer Kimbra.


Tickets will go on sale on October 4 at 9am. A My Live Nation pre-sale begins at midday, September 20, and a pre-sale for American Express cardholders starts at midday on September 26.
