Maroon 5 have added a second Auckland concert date to their upcoming New Zealand tour - before the first show has sold out.

A press release issued today said "phenomenally strong pre-sales" for the Los Angeles group's Vector Arena show on October 3 meant they'd be playing another show the following night on October 4.

The Moves Like Jagger hitmakers also performing at Christchurch's Horncastle Arena on October 1.

Tickets for all three shows go on sale at midday today.
