The Wombats @ The Tivoli, Brisbane – 5 May 2011 – Live Review

Review by: Lauren Sherritt
Known for catchy tunes, clever lyrics, playfully sung narratives and an outstanding energy, The Wombats played to a sold out Tivoli in Brisbane on Thursday night, giving their all to make it a night to remember for the fans attending.

American band Stone Sour slides in at #6 with “Audio Secrecy”, their second ARIA top 40 result after “Come What(ever) May” peaked at #21 in 2006. After twenty six weeks in the top 40, Angus & Julia Stone continue to enjoy strong sales with “Down The Way”, moving up two places to #7. Fellow Aussies Birds Of Tokyo move back in to the top 10 at 10, with Lady Antebellum just behind them at #12, jumping a massive 22 places with their former US smash, “Need You Now”. Train also enjoys some strong momentum, up from 23 to 14 with “Save Me, San Francisco” and Usher lands back in the top 20 at #19, up from 26 with “Raymond V Raymond”.
