Grimes - Grimes Reworking Tour After Gear Theft
Canadian star Grimes is pressing ahead with tour commitments despite losing her equipment after a concert on Thursday (30Aug12).
The electronic musician, real name Claire Boucher, turned to her Twitter.com followers for help after her gig at the Hmv Ritz in Manchester, England, writing, "All the Grimes gear was stolen last night - if you know anything about this get at me!"
Grimes failed to recover her instruments by the time she left England but insists the show must go on, vowing to play her slot at Ireland's Electric Picnic on Saturday (01Sep12).
In a post on Twitter, she writes, "Grimes will still be playing electric picnic despite the gear situation... Thank u (you) everybody for all the concern about our gear situation... We will have 2 (to) rework things, but I am excited by the prospect of change."
Grimes is due to perform in London and Germany next week (begs03Sep12), before taking her trek to North America.
