R&B superstar SZA has confirmed she will return to New Zealand for one big headline show after appearing at Australia's Splendour in the Grass festival.

The All the Stars hitmaker is headlining the Aussie festival, but will come to play Spark Arena in July.

She did the same thing last year, but only played a small gig at the Logan Campbell Center where according to reviews, the venue let her down.

Herald reviewer Chris Schulz noted that he 28-year-old "struggled with technical difficulties throughout the night, being interrupted by wonky ear pieces, a meddling stage handler, a dodgy audio mix and, at one point near the end of the show, a band that was forced to stall thanks to faulty instruments".

So fans will be excited to see what the five-time Grammy nominee star brings to a larger venue.

SZA's polished artistry and songwriting talents saw her create the crically acclaimed CTRL and become the most nominated female artist at last year's Grammys.

She also worked with rap superstar Kendrick Lamar on "All The Stars" for the 2018 blockbuster film Black Panther.

Now she'll play Spark Arena on July 26 and this will be her only New Zealand headline show.
