Alternative rock acts Live and Incubus are to return to New Zealand for concerts in 2024.

They will join forces to play the Christchurch Arena on Tuesday, April 2 and Auckland's Trusts Arena on Thursday, April 4.

The gigs will mark Live's first tour of New Zealand in over two decades and singer Ed Kowalczyk said it was "definitely time to come".

"It has been way too long and I couldn't be happier that Live is finally returning to New Zealand for the first time in 22 years. The band and the show is so good and so strong and the fans who have seen it so far have been extremely happy," he said.

"So, it was most definitely time to come and share it with our mates in New Zealand.  And the icing on the cake is going to be sharing the stage with Incubus for the first time."

It will be Incubus' first time returning to the country since 2018.

Lead singer Brandon Boyd said: "It's been way too long so we're looking forward to seeing old friends and making new friends. LIVE has been a band we've always admired, so to share the stage with Ed and company will be something truly special.  We can't wait!"

Tickets for the shows go on sale on November 5.
