Dunedin band Six60 has announced New Zealand's first stadium tour.

The tour will start in Rotorua International Stadium on March 5.

It will be the first leg of the six-stop stadium tour and the first time one has been embarked on by an artist in the country.

After Rotorua, the band will head to Forsyth Barr Stadium, in Dunedin on March 12, followed by Orangetheory Stadium, Christchurch, March 19; Sky Stadium, Wellington, March 26; McLean Park, Napier, April 2; Eden Park, Auckland, April 9.

The likes of Ed Sheeran and other artists have toured stadiums in New Zealand before but never before in so many separate cities or towns.

Last Friday was the 10-year anniversary release of Six60's debut Gold album.

Fans can expect a special celebration of this album alongside its new music during the tour.

Their latest certified gold single, Pepeha, was their first bilingual song that debuted at No 1 on the New Zealand singles chart.
