Flock of Seagulls? Really?

Remember Flock of Seagulls? Sure you do. Well not only are they still alive but they're also still 'touring'. But some forward thinking citizen tried to put a stop to all that nonsense by stealing all of their stuff from the high end Comfort Inn where they were staying because they were playing a free show in Downey, California where officials estimate- I swear to God - 4,000 people were in attendance...
Singer Mike Score estimated that the contents in the van are worth as much as $70,000, including about $10,000 worth of high-end stage clothes inside the van. The van also contained some of their cell phones, studio equipment and band merchandise. "Somebody just broke into it, stole our whole van with all our equipment, clothing, band gear, cellphones, everything you need when you're on the road -- all your good stuff, all your good clothes, a bunch of expensive band equipment," he said. "A lot of stuff that's really irreplaceable."
All your "Good clothes?"  This is Flock of Seagulls we're talking about right? I don't know what part of this story is harder to believe. That somebody can just walk of with $70,000 worth of musical equipment without being noticed, that they actually owned $70,000 worth of equipment or that 4,000 people want to see Flock of Seagulls, even for free.
