COLUMBIA, Mo. ­— University of Missouri officials are warning the public of a possible scam involving a concert that is being promoted for Oct. 2 at the corner of Stadium and College Avenue. Concert promoters claim that Mike Posner, Fabolous & Mac Miller will be performing at the event.

Neither MU officials nor city of Columbia officials have been involved in the planning of the concert, and have confirmed that the concert will not take place on university-owned property at that intersection. Additionally, Columbia officials and other property owners at the intersection have not confirmed that a concert will take place at that location.

Websites promoting the concert, including opportunities to purchase tickets are:

The MU Police Department is investigating this possible hoax.
