It is unusual for a Brisbane show to sell out prior to the show. Most Brisbane punters just rock up on the night. The combination of Cog's recent success with The New Normal, Shihad's transformation back from Pacifier and local favouites Giants Of Science was enough to inspire 1200 locals to pre-purchase tickets, subsequently officially selling out the day prior to the event despite the fact that on recent individual tours Shihad and Cog would have been obtaining crowds of roughly 4-500 people including punters paying at the door. Cog played an amazing show I was really wondering how Shihad were going to top it. But top they did when they came out and launched staight into You Again which was huge. The whole set was really heavy and probably the best show of that tour.
