ORGANISERS of this week's Pipin ' Hot 3 in Invercargill will stage a seventh concert to cater for audience demand.
The extra concert in the City of Invercargill Caledonian Pipe Band production will be at the Civic Theatre on Saturday afternoon.
The band had originally scheduled five performances and last week added another at 7.30pm on Sunday. Tickets to all shows had virtually sold out so the band yesterday decided to add the seventh show on Saturday afternoon.
"The response has been incredible," pipe major David Pickett said.
He promised an unforgettable performance.
"It'll blow your socks off."
The shows would combine elements of new and old to accommodate all audience tastes, he said.
A cast of about 80 will take to the stage at the Civic Theatre in Invercargill tonight for the first two-hour performance after weeks of r
Now opening night had arrived, the performers just wanted to get on with the job and have a good time doing it, Mr Pickett said.
Tickets for the extra concert go on sale today at the civic administration building in Esk Street.
