    Great ! Another bunch of has beens.

    A concert in 2015 only managed to attract an audience of approximately 30 people for a venue with a capacity of 833. The band delayed the start of the show by an hour in the hope that more fans would turn up but eventually ended up performing to the low numbered audience.
