Evergrey - Tour Bus Burglarized, Cancel Iberian Dates

Swedish progressive metallers Evergrey, who are currently on tour through Europe, have cancelled their dates in in Spain (Llodio, A Coruña, Albacete, Madrid and Barcelona) and Portugal (Benavente) after their tour bus has been burglarized. The band's statement reads as follows:

"Due to a break-in in Evergrey's tourbus all gigs in Spain and Portugal are cancelled. Evergrey lost equipment and merchandise for a value BEYOND 35000 EUROS so it is impossible to continue… we pass Lyon on the way home and will use the equipment of the local support. MAYBE we can go home and get new equipment for the Holland shows and come back but this is still uncertain…

A list of ALL things stolen will be presented here together with the Police report.

More details on this soon…

To our Spanish and Portuguese fans we are extremely sorry but we have NO chance of making it with everything being stolen."

Shit.. Now that's bad luck. 35.000 Euros in equipment lost... what are these guys thinking?
I wasn't going to see them here, but its sad that they had to cancel the show.

Shows were already cancelled, there were problems between band management and spanish promoters
If listening manson + rammstein + him + the rasmus + nightwish + within temptation = Goth, then... Cradle of filth = Black Metal ?

Shit, 35.000 euros, now that's a lot of money. i feel sorry for these guys, but there's still a light at the end of the tunnel.. Metallica wrote "Fade to Black" after a similar incident.

What doesn't kill you, makes you stronger. They'll emerge from this with a stronger resilient force to be reckoned with. Best of luck, Evergrey.

What kind of selfish moron(s) would want to do that to their bus? My sympathies go to Evergrey, and I hope they get suitable replacement equipment; I also hope the responsible party gets caught.

There are two news bulletins today, and both of them are bummers. I haven't read the other one, but I will more likely than not supply a comment for it to.

Oh damn! It's a hard blow for a band to have their equipment stolen, I'm sorry for them and the fans that won't be able to see them live on this dates.
