ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) – A band had their equipment stolen while they were eating at a Steak ‘n Shake near Dogtown Monday night.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kingdom of Giants had their band equipment stolen after they stopped to grab a bite to eat at the restaurant in the 1250 block of Hampton Avenue around 10:45 p.m.  

The paper reports the thieves broke into the band’s van and stole five backpacks of personal items, two laptops and two digital cameras.

Following the theft, the band canceled their 13 remaining shows.

This is the fourth incident of touring band’s having their equipment stolen in St. Louis. Last October, a band had $30,000 worth of equipment stolen outside of Pappy’s in Midtown.
