Avalanche City front­man David Bax­ter per­forms to a sold out crowd at the Clas­sic Hits Win­ery Tour held at Olssen’s Vine­yard in Ban­nock­burn last week. More than 1800 con­cert go­ers, aged from un­der-5s to over 75s, went along to the con­cert to en­joy mu­sic from the New Zealand-based band as well as Kiwi mu­sic heavy­weights The Mut­ton Birds and songstress Gin Wig­more. Rain ear­lier in the day cleared as the con­cert kicked off and the artists per­formed their hit songs to the well re­ceiv­ing crowd. Gin Wig­more proved to be the draw­card as most of the crowd got up from their deckchairs to dance to her en­er­getic per­for­mance. The show was the 12th in the 17-stop na­tional tour which will end in Auck­land on March 3. Con­cert co­pro­moter Camp­bell Smith said the event was a triumph and or­gan­is­ers were look­ing for­ward to re­turn­ing to the spec­tac­u­lar venue next year.
