A well-behaved crowd of about 20,000 concert goers enjoyed yesterday's Mission Concert in Hawkes Bay, police say.

Headlining the show was Bee Gee Barry Gibb and Carol King, with Father Chris Skinner and the Wellington Ukulele Orchestra warming up the crowd.

Constable Rob Tully said there were no problems with the crowd.

"Even our lost property, there was just one small box. It was a well-behaved crowd I'd say," Mr Tully said.

There may have been some minor disorder problems, he said.

Last night marked the 20th year for the concert, with the first in 1993 with opera diva Kiri Te Kanawa headlining.

The only concert ever to be cancelled in that time was in 2009, when Lionel Ritchie's performance was rained out.
