Organisers of the Gibbston Valley Winery Summer Concert near Queenstown have been forced to change the line-up because of Covid-19 outbreaks in two Australian states.

Greenstone Entertainment marketing and PR manager Hayden Dickason said the The Angels, Pseudo Echo and MI-SEX were no longer able to travel to New Zealand for the January 23 show, and had been replaced by Kiwi acts The Jordan Luck Band, Stellar* and Hello Sailor.

The changes also applied to its concerts in Taupo and Whitianga the following weekend.

The three shows will have an all-New Zealand line-up; the three new acts will join Kiwi acts Gin Wigmore and Dragon.

A Covid-19 outbreak on Sydney’s northern beaches last month has led to new cases in neighbouring state Victoria, and the reimposition of travel restrictions and quarantine measures by other states.
