Irish Rock Band The Answer’s Tour Gear Stolen in Birmingham

“Last evening The Answer gear (radio mics, luggage, Marshall TSL), guitars (Gibson Les Paul Tobacco burst, Yamaha Bas BB, pedal board) and tour van were stolen from the Premier Inn outside the Birmingham NEC. The gear was on its way to Bristol for rehearsals for the forthcoming March & April tour.” The Irish rock band reported on 20th February.

Continuing, the band gave details regarding the vehicle and how it could be reported.

“We would appreciate if all those bands in our small industry could share this post and if anyone is offered gear to buy especially in the West Midlands area, please contact 07802 498905.

“The van stolen is a Black Transit van, reg no’ WL11 EHW, if any one spots it please contact the number above.

Sadly, as The Answer noted: “The touring business for all bands is hard enough at the best of times so it rips the heart out of all the preparation and hard work that goes into putting a tour together when scumbag thieves do s**t like this. We remain undeterred, to all other bands, please stay vigilant.

On a brighter note, the band’s new album, Sundowners, will be released on 17th March, through Golden Robot Records and 7Hz, and can be pre-ordered clicking here.
