This shit needs to stop.
Bands are going to cease touring certain cities and certain countries if this shit keeps happening.
Yes…chances are this is merely a reflection of the worsening economy, and yes, theft happens everywhere and may not be band specific. But I believe that these thefts are the rest of profiling and casing.
People watch from afar as the band hangs out in their van, working on their computers and loading up equipment. They wait for the band to either go on or go party with bitches, and BAM! — theft. I’ve lost portable DVD players this way.
Lower Than Atlantis report that they have had much of their personal shit pilfered while in Montreal. Come on, Canada — you’re supposed to be better than this.
The band Tweeted last night that “someone broke into our van, stole ALL of our money, our passports, laptops and camera. Missing England pretty bad…”
No shit. That sucks.
