Smallest crowd The Boss has played in front of?

Is this the smallest audience Bruce Springsteen has ever played in front of?

You'd be hard pressed to find a gig that The Boss put on with so few people in the audience.

On this day (16th Jan) in 1973 - Bruce and The E Street Band turned up to play a show at Villanova University, Philadelphia.

But they didn't know the student paper had gone on strike meaning the gig hadn't been advertised.

So only 25 people turned up!
