Martin Phillipps comments:

“This is the first time we’ve played a rugby gig so we’re pulling out all the stops and playing the best set we can and I guarantee that means the crowd will be warmed up by The Chills!”

Chris Green ORFU comments:

“We see music in Dunedin as being a significant contributor to music in NZ, and are pleased to have The Chills as part of our pre-match entertainment at Carisbrook.”

We want to celebrate the passion that people have for our province, and as well as our passion for rugby we have a reputation for our passion for music.

The Chills are an icon of the south, and as such, we are excited to have them play for both our local supporters and our domestic and international visitors”

The Vodafone Otago NPC team is playing the British and Irish Lions team as part of the DHL NZ Lions Series and Otago boasts one of the best provincial records against the visiting team.
