Swedish heavy metal band Katatonia are breathing a sigh of relief after two guitars stolen during a concert in Minnesota were handed in to police.
The rockers were stunned to find the Mayones instruments they had intended to give away to fans as part of a contest had been swiped from the backstage area while they performed in St. Paul last weekend (18Sep10), and they reported the crime to cops.
But the thieves didn't hold on to the guitars for long - they have since been turned over to local authorities.
In a post on Katatonia's Facebook.com page, the band writes, "We won't get into the murky ugly details right now as the priority was and is that we get them back on the road for our shows and then on to the competition winners, so let's celebrate that for now while the police continue to do their job."
