Cilla Sutton, owner of The Ave Bar in Wanganui is a long-time fan of Whitney Houston - she put on a tribute to her in Wanganui when she died - and was at the concert on Monday.
She said it was a very enjoyable night and tribute artist Belinda Davids is "so close to being Whitney".
Ms Sutton said she went up to Davids at the end of the night and told her she was 'probably the closest I would ever see to Whitney Houston ever again'."
"I would've paid $100 to see her. You'd think that Whitney's spirit was in her [Davids'] body."
"I saw Whitney on her last show in Melbourne, and even Whitney at her stage in her life then didn't hit those notes. She [Davids] hit every note perfect to perfection."
"I'd love to have her back here again.
"It was very professional, the whole stage production and the live band; it was all awesome. It was like Whitney Houston was in the house."
