Portugal The Man
Portugal The Man's Gear Stolen At Lolla
Posted: August 9, 2011
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) 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.

The Oregonian reports 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, Alaska, the hometown of former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin.
