For six weeks, Australian pop star Tones and I has held the number one spot on the New Zealand music charts - and fans of all ages will get to see her live in the Bay of Plenty.

Her Platinum single Dance Monkey has spent the past 11 weeks on the Official Top 40 Singles chart, spending a total of six of those weeks in the top spot.

This summer, the singer songwriter has announced one headline show in New Zealand on January 5 - an all ages gig at Mount Maunganui's Trustpower Baypark presented by ZM, Pato Entertainment and Audiology.

Pato Alvarez from Pato Entertainment said they were excited to put on Tones and I's only New Zealand headliner show in their hometown.

"Her demographic is so big - she has fans from 8-10 years right up to 50-60 years old," Alvarez said.

"It's good to have events for the whole family to attend as part of our summer calendar, we're also doing an all ages Sticky Fingers show on January 3," he said.

Alvarez describes Tones and I as the "biggest breakthrough artist of the year worldwide", and believes the all ages show, which can cater for up to 4000 people, will be a sell-out.

"The hype around her and her music is so big."

This year has been a massive one for Tones And I, starting with her debut single Johnny Run Away, which was released on March 1. Next came what was to become a huge global hit, Dance Monkey on May 10, reaching number one on official singles charts in more than14 countries including the UK, Ireland, Germany, New Zealand, Australia and more.
She has also amassed hundreds of millions of streams.

Tones and I, who released her debut EP The Kids Are Coming on August 30, holds the record for the longest consecutive number 1 for an Australian artist on the ARIA singles chart. Not a bad breakout year for someone who was busking on the streets and living out of a van only six months ago.

Tickets for Tones and I's all ages show will be on sale from 7pm on Monday, October 28 at ticketfairy.com. There will be pre-sales from Thursday, October 24 at 7pm until 11.59pm on Sunday, October 27.
