Katatonia Has Guitars Stolen In St. Paul

Following a slew of sold out headlining shows on the band's North American tour, Sweden’s Katatonia hit a major bump in the road over the weekend when the band realized two guitars, straps, and wireless transmitters were stolen at the stop in St. Paul on Saturday. The band issued the following statement:
"Unfortunately tonight's gig reached an all time low. Two of our guitars got stolen (including our straps with wireless transmitters), obviously causing performance difficulties, frustration and anger. Then against all odds, further technical problems kept on coming down one after another during the show. Apologies goes out to our fans in Minnesota for having to go through this."
The stolen Mayones guitars were to be the grand prize in two Katatonia giveaways that were launched in celebration of the otherwise successful headlining run on the "Night Over North America" tour. Fans are encouraged to check Craigslist, Ebay, local pawnshops, etc. for the missing guitars, and report any suspicious activity to the band. Katatonia still has the following upcoming tour dates:
