The Agonist’s Vicky Psarakis was recently a victim of theft. The singer’s custom stage clothes were stolen while the band were at the Eventhalle Westpark in Ingolstadt, Germany on October 29.
Psarakis issued a statement yesterday (October 30):
“Last night in Ingolstadt with @theagonistofficial, my stage outfit was stolen from backstage. Somehow, the door was unlocked and there was no security guarding the entrance. We stayed late to see if it was possibly with one of the other bands, or misplaced somehow, but it didn’t turn up. How a person could take this and walk out unnoticed is beyond me.
This piece was custom made by @kyllacustomrockwear, so it was one-of-a-kind. It carried immense sentimental value as it’s been used in some of our latest photo shoots, music videos, and of course live shows. Not to mention it was expensive.
Sadly, it’s becoming more common to have bands get their gear stolen, but I’m not sure what someone would want from my clothes. A trophy? Bragging rights? Now that I have to find something else to wear, our stage dynamic is affected. This is how we make our living, to create art and share it with the world. I’m livid.
If anyone has any information that may help us track down this piece, please let me know.”
