London indie band Sports Team had their guitars, amps and keyboards stolen today, just hours before they are expected to play at Manchester’s Neighbourhood Festival.

The band are currently on tour supporting Two Door Cinema Club, who had a show at the O2 last night (October 11th) and still have four dates left in Plymouth and Ireland.

The band shared a picture of the suspect and his Volkswagen car as he appears to be taking the expensive equipment out of their van.
