An estimated 15,000 people braved the harsh Gibbston sun and
and attended the sold out Gibbston Valley Summer Concert, the
final in a four-tour New Zealand series.
The concert culminated with an hour-long set by Pat Benatar
and guitarist husband Neil Giraldo and began with two
Wakatipu High School bands, ahead of international rock acts
America and Bachman and Turner.
Sunblock was a wanted commodity and sun hats were uniform
under the cloudless sky and dry heat.
