If Sticky Fingers members have fulfilled their promise, they will be a little worse for wear today.

The Australian reggae-rock band are on their first tour of New Zealand, and it has been ''f ... wild'', bassist Paddy Cornwall says.

''There's been heaps of chanting afterwards and hanging with the locals.''

The band were able to cope with the daily routine of rock, party and sleep, by acclimatising themselves, he said.

''The first show back you feel a bit rough, but then you get used to feeling like s ... and it just gets back to feeling like normal.''

About 4500 people were expected at last night's concert.
