It's been 20 years since Bic Runga's iconic Drive album was released, so to celebrate, she's taking it back out on the road.

Drive was Runga's first album and featured some of her biggest hits including Something Strange, Drive and of course, Sway.

Since its release, she's received almost every musical honour in New Zealand, including the Legacy Award at last year's NZ Music Awards, and this year being named as a finalist for the Silver Scrolls for the first time since winning it for Sway in 1997.

So now, she'll give special performances of the entire album, as well as selected hits and hand-picked gems from her many other releases.

And as Runga is an ambassador for the Maia Health Foundation, she'll be donating $5 from each ticket for her Christchurch show to the foundation, which raises money for Canterbury's health system.

You can head along to A Celebration of Drive at Christchurch's Isaac Theatre Royal on October 20, Auckland's Civic Theatre on November 2 and Wellington's Opera House on November 3.
