Frank Black Cancels 2 Shows

LESTER, Pa. (AP) — Thieves in suburban
Philadelphia stole up to $100,000 worth of
guitars, musical equipment, and other items
from veteran rock musician Frank Black,
forcing his band to cancel their next two

Black, who formerly led the avant-garde
Pixies, had performed with his new group, The
Catholics, Thursday night in Philadelphia. The
band’s trailer and most of its musical
equipment were stolen from a hotel parking

While the band is insured for its 17 guitars,
amplifiers, drums, and other equipment, some
of the vintage items are irreplaceable, Black
said. They include four 1960s Fender
Telecaster guitars.

The Philadelphia show was the third date on
The Catholics’ current tour. The band has had
to cancel shows in Washington and Pittsburgh,
but plans to buy new equipment and resume
their tour with three shows in Toronto.
