Portugal. The Man Loses Gear in Chicago Heist

Oregon-based rock band Portugal. The Man has lost all of its equipment after its touring van and trailer were stolen from a Chicago parking lot.

Reports are that the band lost dozens of items including vintage guitars and amps, keyboards, effect pedals, drums and microphones. The band’s Ford van and trailer were taken from an attended parking lot Monday. They were in Chicago to perform at the city’s Lollapalooza music festival.

Lead singer John Gourley says the band had only recently acquired all the equipment they needed to make the music they want and put on the live show their fans have come to expect.

The band hails from Wasilla.
