LOCAL BAND GRADE 2 HIT BY GEAR THEFT ON TOUR – FUNDRAISER LAUNCHED

A fundraiser has been launched to help local band Grade 2 replace items that were stolen from their van whilst on tour in Italy.

Items including passports, suitcases, laptops, hard drives and more were taken whilst their van was parked in Milan.

The band is currently in negotiations with the local authorities but is continuing with their European tour nonetheless.

Why would you leave passports in a parked van???? Continue a tour without a passport???? and laptops and hard drives presumably with all the backing tracks on, how????

Backing tracks? Have you not heard their music? The tours in Italy so you don’t need passport straight away. I guess people have been known to leave passports in locked vans before now. How naive are you?

GoFudMe is everywhere, nobody bothers to get insurance these days.

Exactly this sounds dodgy to me, I would never give any money on gofundme, or any other site like it. Especially for this kind of thing, agreed GET INSURANCE.

I expect they have insurance but needed help straight away?
