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.
