The operators of Arbroath’s Webster Theatre have warned about a scam claiming Scottish singing sensation Lewis Capaldi is coming to the Angus town.
A fake event has been created on Facebook claiming the crooner is appearing in Arbroath in May, with a firm called PrimeQ Events promoting the bogus gig.
Posting on Facebook, ANGUSalive Webster Memorial Theatre & Venues said: “It has come to our attention that a fake event has been created on Facebook, hosted by a company called ‘PrimeQ Events’, saying Lewis Capaldi is coming to Webster Theatre, Arbroath on May 8 2020.

Capaldi played to a packed P&J Live crowd in Aberdeen last night, with thousands of fans attending the gig despite the huge concerns over the spread of coronavirus across Scotland.
