This Beach Boys concert was not the feel-good summer vibe atmosphere long-time fans were hoping for. Mother Nature sent powerful winds and torrential rain that wreaked havoc on the region.

The Grammy Award-winning American rock band rose to fame in the 1960s with hit songs like 'Wouldn't It Be Nice' and 'Good Vibrations'. Their well-known rock and roll tracks attracted young surfers and influenced the "California Sound".

The band announced another tour in the summer of 2017 to perform their greatest hits. The Wild Honey World Tour follows the successful 50 Years of Good Vibrations Tour. The tour kicked off in Europe and made its way to the U.S by autumn.

It's believed that a tornado caused extensive damage at a Beach Boys concert in the southern U.S.

Ripping winds tore a section of roof off an Oklahoma casino, sending a flood of rain into the auditorium this past Saturday.

The Beach Boys were performing at the Riverwind Casino in Norman, a show attended by Governor Mary Fallin.

Fallin told KWTV she walked in the auditorium and noticed it was a wreck. The building had to be evacuated because of the possibility that the entire roof would collapse.

"I looked up towards the balcony and there was this huge flood of rain coming through the roof."

Three tornadoes were reported on Saturday night by Keli Cain, the spokeswoman for the Oklahoma Department of Emergency Management. Although there were reports of fallen trees and power lines, there were no reported casualties.
