Bob Dylan has announced two New Zealand shows.

The 73-year-old pop culture icon will play the first and last shows of a month long Australasian tour in New Zealand, playing the final show at Christchurch at the CBS Canterbury Arena on September 10, and the first in Hamilton at Claudelands Arena on August 9.

Dylan, a poetic maverick who rose to prominence during the 1960s folk revival, has more than 50 album releases to his name, including last year's Tempest, and a career spanning six decades, but such a definition barely scratches the surface of the monumental impact his presence has made on popular culture.

Tickets to the New Zealand shows go on sale on Wednesday, June 4 at 9am.
