Phil Collins announces two New Zealand shows on world tour

Rock star Phil Collins has announced two New Zealand shows - in Christchurch and Napier.

The Garden City will host the English musician for a one-off gig at Christchurch Stadium on February 4 next year.

ChristchurchNZ general manager of destination and attraction Loren Heaphy says it is a delight for Christchurch to host the music legend.

"We're stoked that Collins has chosen to play in Christchurch. He certainly won't be disappointed - we're expecting a sell-out crowd of die-hard fans and our city will be pumping with local and national visitors."

The 'In The Air Tonight' hitmaker announced his world tour Not Dead Yet: Live! Tour last year.

He is following the Christchurch show with a gig at Napier's Mission Estate Winery on Waitangi Day 2019.

Collins has sold more than 280 million records in his career that has spanned almost 50 years as a solo artist and as a member of English rock band Genesis.

Tickets go on sale Wednesday, September 5.
