I guess we couldn’t let tonight’s Drake concert come and go without a little bit of drama, could we, Fresno? Last night, a false rumor about tonight’s sold-out Drake show at Save Mart Center getting canceled spread with vicious fervor.
I’ve checked with the promoter of the concert, Live Nation, and I’m here to tell you that it’s not true.
Drake IS coming to Fresno. The show is NOT canceled. Everybody on Facebook and Twitter saying otherwise is WRONG. Got it?
It’s amazing how quickly it happened, really. But I guess that’s social media for ya. I heard it from two different well-connected people around 5:30 p.m., checked it out, learned it was false, but the rumor train had already left the station. The rumor continued to circulate late into the night.
The worst part of this? Not that it will affect the show any. It’s sold out. If someone bought tickets and then didn’t go because of an unconfirmed Tweet, then they’re a fool. The worst part is how quickly everybody believed this. Geez, people, get better at life. Just ’cause something is on Facebook or Twitter doesn’t make it true.
