A gig listing which suggested that Beyonce and Justin Timberlake were set to play an intimate concert together in London has been confirmed as a fake.

Yesterday, the Songkick listings website posted details of a show to be held by the pair at London's 500-capacity venue The Garage on March 31, but Ticketscript have now confirmed that that the event will not take place and was posted by mistake.

The listing was only set up to test their system, they said in a statement, and was never meant to be seen by members of the public. "There has been a lot of news and social media coverage generated today from an event that appeared on Songkick briefly yesterday morning," they said. "The event in question listed Beyonce, Justin Timberlake and Toto as headliners at an event at The Garage. This is not a real event. Ticketscript would like to apologise for any confusion and inconvenience that this may have caused.

"This event was set up in the Ticketscript system as a test event. Unfortunately the data was then connected to Songkick and was published on the Songkick website," they added. "Ticketscript would like to reiterate that this was a test of the functionality in our system and was never intended for the public domain. We are reviewing our procedures to ensure that this cannot happen again. The event does not exist. Songkick had no knowledge of this event and Ticketscript provided this information in error. "

Earlier this week, Timberlake announced that he will play a surprise gig at The Forum in north London immediately after performing at the Brits next Wednesday (February 20). The singer will release his comeback album, 'The 20/20 Experience', will be released on March 18. The LP is the first new music from the singer-turned-actor and Myspace entrepreneur since his second solo effort 'FutureSex/LoveSounds' in 2006.

'The 20/20 Experience' tracklisting is as follows:

'Pusher Love Girl'
'Suit & Tie' (featuring Jay-Z)
'Don't Hold The Wall'
'Strawberry Bubblegum'
'Tunnel Vision'
'Spaceship Coupe'
'That Girl'
'Let The Groove Get In'
'Mirrors'
'Blue Ocean Roar'
