A Theater in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania has been forced to reimburse all their customers, after realizing they had been swindled by phony promoters.
The Sherman Theater announced they had booked Drake in the 1,800 seat theater for a show in May. With the first date selling out so quickly they then agreed to do a 2nd show the day after.
However, both dates in May have been canceled, after theater managers discovered the Virginia Beach, VA booking agent they were working with had no connections to Drake’s management or tour.
Drake’s publicist Sarah Cunningham said in a statement
“Unfortunately, this show was indeed a false booking by outside parties who misrepresented Drake and his management.”
Drake himself addressed the issue, after multiple promoters were scammed multiple times, by fake booking agents representing the rapper in 2010.
“It has been brought to my attention that false promoters and booking agents are illegally using my name and likeness to promote concerts and club appearances for their own financial gain. It is frustrating for me to hear that many of my fans, who like myself are innocent victims in these scams, have been misled due to the greed of these promoters.”
