Tone Loc Plans Shows for Scammed Bars

MILFORD, Mich. (AP) -- 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.

Tone Loc will play April 11 at the Red Dog Saloon in Milford and April 12 at Bumpers in Westland, The Detroit Free Press reports.

Red Dog owner Patty McMillan gave about $400 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 $1,000.

The scam artist hasn't been caught.

McMillan and Judy Johnson of Bumpers contacted Tone Loc's real manager and the rapper offered to play the shows for his regular fee.

The rapper, whose real name is Anthony Terrel Smith, is known for the hits "Wild Thing" and "Funky Cold Medina."
