Rockers perform final show in valley
Ready for a concert?
A capacity crowd of 15,000 are expected at the annual Gibbston Valley concert on Saturday.
International rockers Heart, Foreigner and Three Dog Night performed last weekend at Whitianga and before a crowd of 15,000 in Taupo, before their final New Zealand show in Queenstown on Saturday.
Three Dog Night included crowd favourites Joy To The World and Mama Told Me (Not To Come) in their set.
They were followed by Foreigner led by Mick Jones, with Kelly Hansen on vocals, who had the crowd singing enthusiastically to hits including I Wanna Know What Love Is and Cold as Ice.
Rock sisters Ann and Nancy Wilson, otherwise known as Heart, opened with their hit song Barracuda, and concluded the show with their own rendition of Zeppelin’s Stairway To Heaven.
A couple of lucky concertgoers in Whitianga even had Happy Birthday sung to them by the crowd.
Gates open at Gibbston at 11am on Saturday.
