Fan Changes His Fave Band’s Wiki Page To Get Backstage…And It Works

David Spargo loves the Australian band Peking Duk. I mean, really, really like them. He came up a brilliant way, and one I’ve never ever heard of in all my years of working in the music industry. On Wednesday night in Melbourne, he went to the backstage area of a concert, where he was stopped by a security guard. David told him he was band member Reuben Styles’ stepbrother, and for proof, he pulled up Peking Duk’s Wikipedia page on his phone and pointed out his name. The name he added only a few minutes before. Guess what happened?

That’s right. He got in.

“It was probably the most genius, mastermind move that I’ve ever witnessed,” said Adam Hyde, Styles’ bandmate. “It’s crazy. He just did it on the spot, in a second on his phone.

“He told the security guard he was our stepbrother or something, and showed them the Wikipedia page and his ID.”

It goes to show, said Hyde, “never trust Wikipedia”.

Spargo introduced himself to the band, who were more impressed by his ingenuity than concerned by the security breach.

Let’s hope the terrorists don’t clue into this one.
