JEFF LOOMIS robbed in St. Louis, asks for donations to help out!


Jeff Loomis and his band, currently on tour with SOILWORK, had their van broken into last night while in St. Louis. Loomis elaborates:

"Last night after our show in St. Louis, our tour van was broken into as we were grabbing a bite to eat before our drive to Dallas. We were parked in a well lit area in front of the restaurant. In the ten to fifteen minutes that it took for us to order our food and eat, all of our personal items such as laptops, cameras, musical equipment, cell phones, passports and money were stolen. We came outside to find the lock on the driver side door popped out of the van, and promptly called the police. A report has been filed and the van was fingerprinted, but the leads don't seem promising. The police stated that this is apparently a common occurrence for the area. We are all in disbelief, but are very fortunate for everyone to be ok. 

After discussing the situation as a group, we would like to try to continue on with this tour. But to be able to do this, we will need your help. We have all taken a huge hit financially, and we cannot continue on without some sort of support. We have set up a paypal account for any amount of donations to assist us for the duration of the tour. 

Below is the paypal email to make donations to.


Any and all support will be greatly appreciated. 

Thank you,"

--Jeff Loomis band and crew

  1. seems somewhat shady. How's about a list of what you need to continue the tour not just an open ended paypal account to accept unlimited donations. A police report to validate and a little more transparency please. There's Salvation Army and Red Cross in many of the cities the tour is going. Call out to some of the public outreach services before tapping in the fans that have already spent their hard earned buck toward your music.

  2. Would Mr Loomis also like a blood sacrifice and our first born children?

  5. Yes, I'm sure the Red Cross and Salvation Army have an abundance of 7 string guitars ready to oo. I'm all for it, might donate a few dollars myself to help. Hope Jeff can continue.

  6. why would anyone not have their cell phones with them ? Same with money ? If you have all your equipment and items in a van, that was sure crowded living conditions or very little equipment
