MONTREAL – A rental truck containing Iggy Pop and the Stooges' equipment has been recovered empty after being stolen in Montreal.
Stooges road manager Eric Fischer says the 15-foot truck stolen Monday contained all the group's instruments and stage gear. He tells the Detroit Free Press the lost items are worth tens of thousands of dollars.
Police say the truck was found empty Tuesday several blocks from the hotel where it was stolen.
The Stooges are in the middle of a tour with stops in Belgium, Britain, Canada, the Czech Republic, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Spain and the United States.
Fischer says the Stooges will make their scheduled Wednesday gig in Toronto using rented and donated equipment.
