KATATONIA ROBBED IN MINNESOTA – Guitars, wireless transmitters stolen during show in St. Paul

STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – Following a slew of sold out headlining shows on their first North American tour in over three years, Sweden’s heavyweight progressive metal act, Katatonia, hit their first major bump in the road over the weekend when the band realized they had two guitars, straps, and wireless transmitters stolen from them at their stop in St. Paul on Saturday.

The band issued the following statement…

“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.”            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 pawnshops, etc. for the missing guitars, and report any suspicious activity to the band.

Katatonia will continue to forge across North America and back, as they round out the final two weeks of the tour.

Stay tuned for more information on Katatonia and the “Night Over North America” tour.
