Don't get out your money just yet...
A promoted concert that was said to feature Beyonce and Justin Timberlake in London has been revealed to be fake.
Concert promoter Songkick had the listing for a 500-capacity venue called The Garage on March 31. However, Ticketscript have confirmed that this will not happen.
They wrote in a statement: "There has been a lot of news and social media coverage generated today from an event that appeared on Songkick briefly yesterday morning. The event in question listed Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Toto as headliners at an event at The Garage. This is not a real event. Ticketscript would like to apologise for any confusion and inconvenience that this may have caused.
This event was set up in the ticketscript system as a test event. Unfortunately the data was then connected to Songkick and was published on the Songkick website. Ticketscript would like to reiterate that this was a test of the functionality in our system and was never intended for the public domain. We are reviewing our procedures to ensure that this cannot happen again. The event does not exist. Songkick had no knowledge of this event and ticketscript provided this information in error.
However, if you're in London and want to see Timberlake, he will be playing a show at The Forum in north London immediately after his performance at the BRIT awards next Wednesday.
