Singer Orla Gartland has issued an appeal for the safe return of her music equipment that was stolen following a gig in London.
The Irish singer/songwriter’s touring van was broken into over the weekend. She performed in London’s Electric Ballroom on October 15. This gig was also part of her “Woman On The Internet” album tour.
Taking to Instagram, Gartland also claimed that several items of stage wear and musical equipment were stolen following this break-in. It had been parked by Wembley.
A number of Fender guitars, drums, stage clothes, pedalboards, keyboards and a Sony A6600 camera were amongst the items stolen. Gartland also shared this post via her Twitter, as well as Instagram account.
“The post no one wants to make”
This post from Gartland via Instagram reads the following.
“Here it is lads, the post no one wants to make: yesterday our tour van was broken into in the carpark of the Travelodge Wembley and some of our gear taken”.
“Some of it may end up discarded but we’re certain some will end up on sale – please keep an eye out in shops & online and contact my manager [email protected] with any info”.
Gartland also added, “it seems that whoever broke into the van was disturbed and didn’t get a chance to help themselves to everything there – this could have been much worse. no one is hurt and everyone in our beautiful tour crew has been supporting one another so much since all of this kicked off”.
She also wrote, “some of it may end up discarded but we’re certain some will end up on sale – please keep an eye out in shops & online and contact my manager [email protected] with any info”.
Gartland had already released her debut full length album “Woman On The Internet” last year.
