Club Tricked By Fake Chippendales Group

     ROANOKE, Va. (AP) - A Roanoke club will provide refunds to Chippendales fans after a show it scheduled turned out to be fake.
     Media outlets report that 202 Market canceled Wednesday's sold-out show when it discovered the deception. 
     Events and promotions manager Jo Jo Soprano says the fake group sent a flier to him indicating the Chippendales were on tour and wanted to perform at the club. He says the posters and tickets it provided had the Chippendales trademark.
     Chippendales managing partner Kevin Denberg says a fan tipped off the company after noticing the Roanoke show wasn't listed on its website or Facebook.
     Denberg says it's not the first time a copycat group has tried to pass itself off as Chippendales. He says the company's lawyers are investigating the Roanoke incident.
