Kirsten Johnstone heads backstage at Guns N' Roses' Not In This Lifetime show with Production Manager Dale Skjerseth. His team battled wind and rain to ensure the Wellington show did go on.

The band takes 63 people on the road, along with 90,000 tonnes of gear, all transported in their own 747 plane. In NZ they've picked up another 50 locals for lighting, video and other crafts. All in all, it's about 20 trucks-worth of equipment, not including staging or barricading. All in support of 2hrs 45 min of music...
