Still wish Atonement/Windopane was in this...
"Sold out" doesn't necessarily mean that a venue will be full. It just means that all the tickets were sold. For various reasons, a venue might not sell a particular show to full capacity. Plus there are always going to be a few people that buy tickets but don't actually attend the show.
Obviously that wasn't the case here, since the show was
sold out and the venue was
packed. But the two don't always go hand in hand.
For example, I saw Metallica at the Wachovia Center in 2004 which was a "sold out" show, even though most (all?) of the seats on the upper level of the arena were empty.
