Jeff Loomis: “Our tourbus got robbed…”

loomis-jeff-robberySadly it is too often you hear this. Not only does musician nowadays lose their expensive instruments but thieves have started to invade their buses and homes. Recently John5 and now Jeff Loomis. When the bands and tour crew were in St. Louis, they took a bite of food afterwards the gig. While the bus was locked up and stood neatly in a well lit parking lot. Guess what?

They come back and it is clean of their stuff. God damn, one truly hopes that these cowards get what they deserve. This tour took a major financial hit and if you are up for it, you can donate to the guys following this link. The Paypal e-mail accepting donations is:

Here follows the press release of Jeff Loomis:

Last night after our show in St. Louis, our tour van was broken into as we were grabbing a bite to eat before our drive to Dallas. We were parked in a well-lit area in front of the restaurant. In the ten to fifteen minutes that it took for us to order our food and eat, all of our personal items such as laptops, cameras, musical equipment, cell phones, passports and money were stolen. We came outside to find the lock on the driver side door popped out of the van, and promptly called the police. A report has been filed and the van was fingerprinted, but the leads don’t seem promising. The police stated that this is apparently a common occurrence in the area. We are all in disbelief, but are very fortunate for everyone to be okay.

After discussing the situation as a group, we would like to try to continue on with this tour, but to be able to do this, we will need your help. We have all taken a huge hit financially, and we cannot continue on without some sort of support. We have set up a paypal account for any amount of donations to assist us for the duration of the tour.
