Rockers the Kills have been left baffled after their tour bus and driver mysteriously disappeared midway through their current U.S. tour.
The band, which includes Kate Moss’ ex-boyfriend Jamie Hince, last saw the vehicle on September 26 in Los Angeles before it vanished, along with the driver and all of their luggage.
The duo — who have been supporting The Raconteurs on the string of live dates — have called in officers from the Federal Bureau of Investigation in a bid to trace the bus.
Guitarist/singer Alison Mosshart says, “It is thought that the driver has committed grand theft auto or that he is in some kind of trouble.
“The bus and driver were last seen on the morning of September 26 at a Prevost dealership in Los Angeles. The driver got some new tires and was set to head to Austin, Texas, to meet up with us. His phone has been off since that afternoon.
“Federal investigators and police are searching for the bus and driver throughout the U.S. and Mexico. We are currently traveling to Nashville (Tennessee) and have no luggage or belongings.”
Mosshart has also made an appeal for the return of the vehicle, asking anyone who sees a black Prevost tour bus with Tennessee license plates reading 0305 EA to call the U.S. police. [SFGATE]
The Kills will end their tour this weekend in NYC with two sold out shows in a row at Music Hall of Williamsburg. Last weekend they played the Austin City Limits Music Festival (September 28). More pictures from that below…
