Silverchair rewrote the record books last Friday when all 4,000 tickets for their show at Brisbane Festival Hall sold out in five hours. Although this venue has been used for rock concerts since the 1950s, this is the first time in history that an Australian band has sold out this venue in just one day.

The Brisbane sell out took place one week after the chair's upcoming Darwin show also sold out all 4,000 tickets in less than a day.

Silverchair's new single Cemetery will be released on June 30 and a full Australian tour is planned for the end of this year.
