As a treat for their fans, Coheed and Cambria typically do a short acoutic set for their fan club members, however, this was a bit trickier since the venue has no general admission section. Photos by Michel Dussack

Instead, Claudio played a single acoustic song - "2's My Favorite 1" - with his wife Chondra for the fan club members and the band gave each member hand signed mock setlists from the show. Photos by Michel Dussack

The night ended with "Welcome Home", the band's most commercially successful song, which the crowd sang along with every word of. And with that, Coheed and Cambria proved that they are indeed ready to headline much bigger venues than they have in the past. Photos by Michel Dussack
