Rumor has it Adele will not be performing a free show at a Quincy T station

The MBTA Transit Police would prefer it if 600 fans of the singer-songwriter didn't show up at the Quincy Center stop Wednesday.

Singer-songwriter Adele will soon be in Boston to perform two sold-out shows at the TD Garden September 14 and 15. The MBTA Transit Police would like you to know, however, that she will not be performing a free show at the Quincy Center MBTA station.

The rumor stems from a Facebook event created in May by a group of local DJs called the Usual Suspects claiming Adele would be playing a free concert at the T stop at 6 p.m. on September 14 along with roots rock band Train (get it?).

The group also created several other Facebook events for fake shows, including a Digital Underground and Snoop Dogg concert in the bathroom of the Weymouth Burger King and a pun-heavy concert at the Weymouth Whole Foods featuring The Red Hot Chili Peppers with Korn and The Cranberries.


Most of the 631 people “attending” the Adele concert seemed to be in on the joke, but other fake concerts have caused a public nuisance before. In April, hundreds of people showed up for a fake Limp Bizkit concert at a Sunoco gas station in Dayton, Ohio after almost 9,000 people RSVPed to a Facebook event.

A representative for the MBTA Transit Police had not responded to a request for comment at the time of this article’s publication.
