Providing fodder for pretentious music fans around the world, an Australian police department issued a tongue-in-cheek warning for citizens ahead of a Nickelback concert last night in the Brisbane suburb of Boondall, The Telegraph reports. Via the Queensland Police Service’s Twitter, law enforcement created a mock BOLO (Be On The Lookout) poster with caricatures of the band and the message: “Wanted for crimes against music.”

But it turns out that the joke might be on the QPS. Nickelback had to add dates to their No Fixed Address tour’s Australian leg due to high demand.
