American rock band The Offspring are coming back to New Zealand next year for one show.

They will play Auckland's Vector Arena on February 27.

The Pretty Fly for a White Guy band promise to perform material from all nine of the albums they have amassed over their 20-plus year career.

Widely regarded as one of the most enduring bands of the 90s California scene, The Offspring have sold more than 36 million albums, including Smash, which remains the highest selling album of all time on an independent label.

The Auckland show comes on the back of the band's appearance at Australia's Soundwave festival.

The band said thirty years on, they still love their job.

"We share a love of this music that we got into at such a young age," said guitarist Noodles.

"It meant the same thing or a very similar thing to all of us back then as it does now. We love recording. We love hanging out backstage. We love giving each other shit and taking the piss out of each other. We love playing."
