The final show will be held on May 30, with the rockers set to play the entire album in full.  

There’s a catch with the final show however, with tickets being only available to fans who registered but missed out on tickets for the past four concerts at the Sydney Opera House. 

Those who registered go into a draw for a chance to buy tickets to the final gig.
