Folkie UK outfit Mumford and Sons have had a horror start to their Australian tour.
Crucial audio equipment has reportedly been swiped from backstage following their tour curtain-raiser at the Belvoir Amphitheatre in Perth last night. While the band do not wish to get police involved, tour manager Giles Woodhead has appealed for information on Facebook. He posted the following message to their three-million fans:
“Thanks to everyone who came to the show last night, we’re happy to have kicked off this tour! Unfortunately, someone broke into our backstage and stole some pretty important things. Crucially – our monitoring devices so we can hear ourselves on stage. We’re not going to get the police involved, and we understand it might seemed like a good idea at the time, but the things are worthless to anyone else but us. If anyone wants to come forward or has any information please send a message to email@example.com.”
Mumford & Sons fans, please do what you can to get the word out to as many people as possible and contact them if you have any information.
