As noted in a poster created by a Facebook user named Roe Alfaro, British rock band Coldplay will have a live concert in Manila titled “Coldplay Viva Manila” on April 18, 2012 to be held at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

Apparently, the Coldplay concert poster had a tagline “Lights will guide you home” and ticket prices and where to buy them; and even added at the bottom, along with the logo of Dayly Entertainment, as the event organizer.

However, Dayly Entertainment strongly denied on Sunday, December 11, 2011 that they are not the organizer of the said Coldplay Manila concert and even noted that the band has no schedule of concert in the country.

“This is the guy who made the fake poster of Coldplay who involved our company’s name.” Dayly Entertainment wrote on its official Facebook page that night, along with a Facebook profile page of Roe Alfaro admitting that he made the poster but only for school project purposes only.

“Okay. Guys, this is just a poster I made for my Computer Graphics class. It’s not intended to spread any rumors or something. I know it’s a bit disappointing for pushing up your hopes.” Roe Alfaro wrote, who is not connected to Dayly Entertainment.

“I’m a fan of Coldplay too. I just want them here as much as you want them too. Anyway, I’m so sorry this kind of thing happened. :)” He added, with GMA News reporting that the poster has convinced a lot of Coldplay fans and even events manager Teddy Dario and radio disc jockey Andi Manzano.

“We would like to inform everyone that the poster of Coldplay Live In Manila being spread around in social media sites is a HOAX! PLS RT” Dayly Entertainment (@Dayly_ent) tweeted also on Sunday night, which also noted in Facebook that they are planning to push legal action against Roe Alfaro.
