Gayngs tour bus mishap
American indie outfit, Gayngs, were forced to cancel their set at the Austin City Limits Festival on Saturday night (October 9) because their tour bus had been stolen. Or so they thought.
The band, who had been unable to reach the driver, reported the bus as stolen at 4:20am on Sunday morning (October 10) and had to cancel the gig due their entire set being aboard the bus.
However, in a further twist to the tale, it appears that the bus, and driver, are both safe and well in Nashville, over 800 miles away. It turns out that the driver was ordered to return there by the bus company because the band was late in paying their $6,000 bill. A claim which Gayngs vehemently deny.
A statement released by singer, and Bon Iver front man, Justin Vernon said, “We were given no warning of our gear being taken and it was absolutely our every intention to pay our bill. Matter of fact, me and Lewis just paid it. In person. In Nashville. Flew there this morning. None of that changes the fact that our gear WAS stolen. And taken hostage. And caused us not to be able play.“
The Austin City Limits Festival was the final date on their tour.
