A large crowd turned out to watch local music legends The
Chills in concert at the Dunedin Botanic Garden this
The free concert was to open the garden's 150th celebrations,
and a crowd estimated at between 2000 and 3000 took advantage
of a fine day to enoy the gig.
Frontman Martin Phillips led the band through a set that
included Pink Frost, Wet Blanket, Heavenly Pop Hit and a rare
performance of Doledrums.
They finished with rousing versions of Leather Jacket and
Rolling Moon that got the crowd up on their feet.
The gig marks the beginning of a year of botanic
celebrations, which includes hosting the 2013 Global Botanic
Gardens Congress in October
