Promoter Garry Van Egmond said the band gave specific instructions to keep prices reasonable.

"They want everybody to be able to afford it," he said. "They won't allow pre-sale selling — it will be 9:00 a.m. on a Monday and the same for everyone, there is no preferential treatment."

The new WOLFMOTHER is now recording the band's second album, tentatively titled "Cosmic Egg", in Los Angeles. A September release and November tour are in the works.

The group, which is now a quartet, played two low-key shows earlier in this year in its home country of Australia under the name WHITE FEATHER before playing a larger show as WOLFMOTHER.

Original WOLFMOTHER bassist Chris Ross and drummer Myles Heskett left the band last August over personal and musical differences with mainman Andrew Stockdale.

WOLFMOTHER's 2006 debut sold more than 500,000 copies in the U.S. and featured the Grammy-winning single "Woman".
