German electro pioneers Kraftwerk are to play two dates in Wellington and Auckland this year.

The group, which had hits in the '70s and '80s with songs 'The Model' and 'The Robots', will play Wellington's TSB Arena on Wednesday, November 29 and Auckland's Spark Arena on Friday, December 1.

The band will then head to Australia for five further dates as part of their Australasian tour.

The multimedia project Kraftwerk was started in 1970 by Ralf Huetter and Florian Schneider. 

They established their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Dusseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. 

Tickets are on sale from Wednesday, July 19.
