Britain's Got Talent star Paul Potts is making his way to Palmerston North.

Potts, who was discovered in 2007 after auditioning on the reality show, will perform in Palmerston North on April 23.

His audition video of him performing Puccini's Nessun Dorma has racked up more than 15 million views on YouTube, and started him on the road to winning the show.

Since then, he has released three studio albums - with a fourth penciled in for release this year - and his story was the subject of 2013 film "One Chance".

The former phone salesman has also released a memoir, also called One Chance, which details his rise to fame.

Tickets for his show go on sale on Thursday, January 23.
