DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Some Limp Bizkit fans are disappointed Wednesday night after a concert, supposedly planned for a local gas station turns out to be a hoax and the person or group behind it could be in legal trouble.
More than 6,000 people have responded to the event that was posted on Facebook.
“I got it from one of our jocks who sent it on Facebook and said have you seen that and we kind of laughed at it as a joke and didn’t think anything of it and then when we came into work yesterday it was like it was all over the place,” WTUE radio station Assistant Program Director John Beaulieu said. “The police were asking us to mention that it’s not actually happening.”
Dayton police also took to social media to debunk the rumor.
On the flyer posted on Facebook, it even listed the WTUE radio station as a sponsor of the event.
“They’ve gone as far as to put our logo on the poster and there’s actually a picture I saw of a van parked in front of the Sunoco that they had stuck our logo on,” Beaulieu said. “It’s basically an elaborate hoax and there’s nothing we can really do except say we have no part of it.”
If you absolutely need to see a Limp Bizkit show, your next opportunity will be at the Teatro Caupolican in Santiago, Chile on May 20 during the band’s week-long South American tour.What others are clicking on:
