"First show in Australia and of 2016 was a blast! Feels great to be back on stage and to be back here, we were welcomed so warmly!!! Thank you Brisbane! Off to Sydney now, who shall we see tomorrow?"

The band made history as the first Finnish band to ever headline the venue. Metal Hammer has posted behind-the-scenes footage from the show below. Expect more footage to surface in the coming days.
The setlist on the night was as follows:
"Shudder Before the Beautiful"
"Yours Is an Empty Hope"
"While Your Lips Are Still Red"
"7 Days to the Wolves"
"The Poet and the Pendulum"
