Iggy & the Stooges had their gear stolen on Aug. 4 outside the Embassy Suites hotel in Montreal. The band had played the Osheaga Festival in Montreal the night before. The truck and all backline equipment were stolen. The band has a show Wednesday night at Toronto's Massey Hall and will purchase and rent replacement gear for the remaining three dates of the tour, according to Fischer.
