FouseyTUBE’s sold out “Hate Dies, Love Arrives” show at the Greek Theatre was evacuated on Sunday night following a bomb threat.
According to reports, approximately 1,500 people were forced to leave the venue after someone made a call to the police and claimed to have placed an explosive device in the theater.
