Dears Tour Bus Stolen, Tour Continues

 

What the hell does one do with a vehicle that size – dump it behind a
Wal-Mart?

The Dears‘ tour bus was stolen
Wednesday night in Montreal
as the band was home packing for their six-week North American tour. The coach
was taken from the parking lot of the Comfort Inn at 700 Blvd. in St. Jean, Pointe-Claire
while the driver was asleep in the hotel, prior to their 6 a.m. scheduled
departure. Fortunately, no luggage or gear was on board at the time of the
theft and the band’s trailer was left behind. True to The Dears’ resilient
nature, the veteran band isn’t letting this minor mishap slow them down and
will kick off the tour tonight in Toronto.
All shows are planned as scheduled.

If anybody has any information about the stolen tour bus or knows of its
whereabouts please contact your local authorities. Bus model: Prevost,
Series 60. Accuride Alcoa; license plate: V957YW
