Police: No Limp Bizkit concert planned for Ohio gas station

By Ben Hooper

DAYTON, Ohio, April 20 (UPI) -- An Ohio police department has a message sure to disappoint some residents: Limp Bizkit is not playing a show at a local gas station.

The Dayton Police Department said in a Twitter post that flyers and Facebook events promoting a Wednesday concert featuring Fred Durst's rap-metal band at a local Sunoco gas station were part of a hoax.

The Facebook event, which was still live Wednesday, included an apparently fraudulent screenshot of the band's official Twitter account promising a Dayton Sunoco show to celebrate the marijuana-themed "4/20" holiday.

"BE AWARE: There is NO Limp Bizkit concert Wed. 4/20 at Sunoco station at Keowee St. & Wayne Ave. These ads FALSE," police tweeted.

The city of Dayton elaborated on its official Facebook page:

"'No one knows what it's like...' to be fooled by a fake concert.

#DaytonPolice have received many calls regarding a supposed concert today at the Sunoco gas station at 912 Wayne Avenue. DPD has confirmed with the manager of Sunoco that the event referenced in this flier and Facebook event is fraudulent."

Posts on the band's official Twitter account also called the concert rumors "total BS," but offered "props to the posers who got everyone going."
