Just about everyone has a story about the time they saw a band and there were only a handful of people there.
On Dec 9, 1961, The Beatles played at the Palais Ballroom in Aldershot to a crowd of just 18 people. The date had not been advertised, owing to the local newspaper’s refusal to accept the promoter’s check. After the show The Beatles became rowdy, getting themselves ordered out of town by the local police.
You ever been to a show like that? This was 56 years ago today and this is a picture of that evening with The Beatles on stage.
Make you wonder if any of the people there that night had any clue?
