Katatonia Lose Equipment in Robbery

Linda Åkerberg

Katatonia had hit the U.S. for their first tour of the region in over three years when they were robbed. Two guitars, straps and wireless transmitters were jacked from the band’s tour stop in St. Paul, Minn. on Saturday.

The band issued the following statement regarding the matter: “Unfortunately tonight’s gig reached an all time low. Two of our guitars got stolen (including our straps with wireless transmitters), obviously causing performance difficulties, frustration and anger. Then against all odds, further technical problems kept on coming down one after another during the show. Apologies goes out to our fans in Minnesota for having to go through this.” Minnesotans are probably bummed out that their fellow statesmen committed such a grievous injustice against Katatonia.

Incidentally, the stolen Mayones guitars were to be the grand prize in two Katatonia giveaways that were launched in celebration of the otherwise extremely successful headlining run on the Night Over North America Tour. Fans are encouraged to check Craigslist, eBay, local pawn shops and other possible avenues for the thieves to hock the missing gear.

Despite the theft, the band will continue along the tour route for the next two weeks.
