BLISTERING sun was not the only thing to turn up the heat at yesterday's Red Hot Summer Tour, as some of the world's best musicians tore shreds through Country Club Tasmania grounds.
Suzi Quatro proved she was more than just 15 Minutes of Fame , triggering an eruption of applause from an audience of more than 3000 as she strutted onstage.
A sea of hands, some clapping, others waving, rose as she reeled off her 1979 hit Stumblin' In .
However, it was 48 Crash that truly needed no introduction.
The steady beat of lone kick-drums rumbled along the surrounding golf course as a pre-emptive cheer began to swell from the mosh pit of baby boomers.
Wide-brimmed straw hats, tank tops, leather boots, leopard print skirts and more were rocked by the crowd, who, despite the 33-degree heat, remained planted front-of-stage for the entirety of the concert.
Earlier that day Russell Morris had ``ooh maw-ma-mowed'' his way through The Real Thing and even managed to cause a stir as he left the audience with a light-hearted comment.
``I'll leave you with a quote from a great Australian, Gina Rinehart,'' Morris said.
```Thanks for your company'.''
Shannon Noll followed with his own brand of Australian rock and, as ever, The Black Sorrows woo-ed audiences with the charm of Joe Camilleri.
Country Club general manager Matthew Hardman said the crowd were respectful and appeared to appreciate the concert's intimate vibe.
``The atmosphere here is unreal, everyone is well-behaved and enjoying the day,'' Mr Hardman said, as Morris prepared to launch into another song.
``It really shows the spirit of teamwork, it's exciting to be a part of.''
