It was a bust for The Beach Boys!

It was on this day (11th April) in 1973 when the iconic band were left thinking - wouldn't it be nice if more people turned up.

They weren't doing too well in the US at the time and were booked to play a 16,000 capacity venue.

But only 3,000 tickets were sold for the show and the event was a big financial disaster.
