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.

My deepest sympathies for Evergrey! I really hope tides will turn for them soon.. first they loose Jari and now their equipment, they deserve better..

Shows were already cancelled, there were problems between band management and spanish promoters

Is there any band out there who is more unlucky than these guys? I don't think so ... DAMN!

I agree.. these guys are having such bad luck lately. I feel sorry for them, they dont deserve this

I was gona go to the show, or at least try.

I hope they book a new show on a better day.

It's unfortunate though.

These guys just can't seem to catch a break..

Hope they bought insurance...

I will see how they rock in Lyon, with the others equipment :p
Hope it will not affect the show much

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.

Thats fuckin shiktty for them. hot damn

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.
Eddie Misery - 24.05.2010 at 21:54  
Holy shit, that's fuckin shitty. :/
Black Conundrum - 25.05.2010 at 00:53  
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.
Daggon - 25.05.2010 at 04:26  
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.
Shadowcross - 25.05.2010 at 06:13  
35,000 euros! holy shit!
heavy koen - 25.05.2010 at 10:24  
Evergrey rules!

Bad mojo continues for them...hope they get their stuff back!
