Tone Loc plans to play shows at two bars in the Detroit area that were swindled by a man posing as the rapper's manager. The Detroit Free Press reports Tone Loc will play April 11th at the Red Dog Saloon in Milford and April 12th at Bumpers in Westland. Red Dog owner Patty McMillan gave about four hundred dollars last summer to a man posing as Tone Loc's manager who promised his client would perform at her bar. Authorities say the man also scammed Bumpers out of one thousand dollars. The newspaper said McMillan and Judy Johnson of Bumpers contacted Tone Loc's real manager, Bobby Bessone in Nashville, who said the rapper offered to play the shows for his regular fee. The scam artist hasn't yet been caught.
