Could the person who caused a stir amongst Madonna fans with fake rumours of a July tour earlier this year have been at it again? It certainly seems that way, with Sony Music forced to deny email reports that Susan Boyle was headed to Australia in August for a series of live concert dates.
The email, which this time seems to have been sent to the News Limited newspapers throughout the country, as well as infiltrating the NineMSN website, claimed that the Scottish superstar would visit our shores in August this year and play three shows each in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. The email also reportedly claimed she would visit New Zealand for two shows in Auckland.
A spokesperson for the “London Music Group” reportedly wrote “ticketing details for all performances will be released soon.”
But Sony Music has officially scotched suggestions that Susan will be visiting as “completely false”.
The fake Subo tour email harks back to another incident in early March when a man claiming to be a “touring industry insider” said that Madonna was planning an Australian visit in July. This email too was a fake.
(For the first time, we’ve decided to print the fake ‘Madonna tour’ email in the comments section of this post. It’s extraordinarily detailed.)
