American singer-songwriter James Taylor is returning to New Zealand for two shows over Waitangi weekend, 2017.

The 'Country Road' hitmaker will perform in Auckland at Vector Arena on February 4 and Napier at the Church Road Winery on February 5.

The 68-year-old has sold over 100 million albums throughout the course of his career, won five Grammy Awards and received the prestigious Diamond Award for his record sales in the US alone.

The last time Taylor played here was 2010, when he also played Vector Arena.

Tickets to see James Taylor and his All-Star Band will be released to the general public on Friday, October 28.
