Indie pop singer Benee will launch her 2022 World Tour in Aotearoa.
The Kiwi artist will hit the road next February, taking her full-scale pop show to 10 towns and cities around the country, including three new dates in Dunedin, Auckland and Wellington.
The news comes after her recent World Tour announcement, which will see her visit more than 40 cities in Europe and the US throughout May and June, after completing her run of local shows.

I am beyond excited to announce that my 2022 World tour kicks off in NZ in Feb next year, said Benee.
Its been such a long time coming and weve lived through a lot in these weird times but shows starting up again has [really] got everyone sososososo happyyy!!!!
I cant wait to get back out there & meet all of u and play a bunch of new musiiiiiicccc!!
Indie pop singer Benee will be visiting 10 towns and cities around Aotearoa early next year, bringing her full-scale pop show to people who might not have the opportunity to visit main centres for concerts.
Benee will open her tour in Nelson on February 25 and progress through Dunedin, Invercargill, Auckland, Hamilton, Wellington, Tauranga, Palmerston North, and Napier, before capping things off with a final performance in New Plymouth on March 13.
The local shows will be Kiwis last chance to see Benee before she heads overseas to share her new music, following the recent release of her latest single Doesnt Matter - her first new music since her acclaimed 2020 debut album Hey U X.
Benee has also handpicked up-and-coming Christchurch indie pop-rock outfit Theres A Tuesday as the support act for the New Zealand leg of her tour.
The group consists of two female frontwomen, Nat Hutton and Minnie Robberds, both on guitars and vocals, with drummer Angus Murray, and bassist Joel Becker.
Benee recently released her latest single Doesnt Matter - her first new music since her acclaimed 2020 debut album Hey U X.
The re-announcement of the New Zealand tour leg comes after Benee confirmed in August that she would postpone her first nationwide eight-date regional tour due to personal circumstances, until early next year.
Benees Aotearoa Tour was originally announced in May, following the success of her sold-out national tour in October 2020.
The Supalonely singer decided to hit the smaller regions after recognising that fans outside the main centres dont often get the opportunity to experience big concerts in their own backyards.
Last month, Benee posted a lengthy statement to Instagram to mark World Mental Health Day, opening up and giving fans an insight into her personal struggles.
The 21-year-old, real name Stella Bennett, explained there were moments this year when she really felt like I wasnt going to get through it all.
She went on to tell her followers that she was continuing to work through her own mental health journey and encouraged others going through tough times to speak up and ask for help.
If you are struggling, I want you to reach out to someone, even anonymously, she wrote. I'd love to know how you guys have been feeling, no matter how bad.
Despite her downtimes, Benee has enjoyed tremendous success over the past 18 months since releasing Hey U X and completing a sold-out national tour.
The 2020 Silver Scroll award winner has also collected seven New Zealand Aotearoa Music Awards in the past two years, twice taking home Single of the Year and Best Pop Artist categories.
She is nominated in a further three categories for the upcoming 2021 awards Te Kaipuoro Takitahi Toa (Best Solo Artist), Te Kaipuoro Arotini Toa (Best Pop Artist), and Te Pukaemi o te Tau (Album of the Year).
Earlier this year she received international recognition when she was named on Forbes 30 under 30 Asia 2021 list, while worldwide streams in the billions have made her one of the most exciting new acts to have emerged anywhere.
She has also performed on a string of major US television shows including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, The Ellen DeGeneres Show and Late Night With Seth Meyers, and appeared alongside Sir Elton John on his Apple Music Rocket Hour radio show.
