Torche Robbed In Chicago, IL, Canadian Shows Cancelled

Posted May 15, 2010, 8:13 a.m. in Bands by Jon E.

Torche lost a number equipement, instruments and personal items as a result of their van being broken into last night in Chicago, IL. The group offered the following statement on the matter:

“Last night in Chicago our van got broken into and a bunch of our equipment got stolen. Among the stolen equipment was both of Jon’s bass guitars (custom first act and custom electrical guitar company), our new guitar player’s custom guitar, Steve’s black les paul custom, Steve and Jon’s pedal boards, all our guitar stands, bags of cables and strings, and a bunch of personal bags that included check books, passports, IDs, etc etc…

Since 3 out of the 5 of us lost our passports, we won’t be able to play our shows in Canada now on May 18th and 19th. We’re trying to find anyone interested in setting up last minute house shows/small bar shows around the Northeast to try and make some extra money. The total of all our shit that got ripped off easily exceeds $10,000 and we just borrowed money to put a down payment on a new van before this trip, so we’re in a bad situation right now.

If anyone thinks they might be able to help us out with shows in the Northeast on May 18th, 19th, and 20th, it would be greatly appreciated!!!”
