MEXICO (CelebrityAccess) Mexican band Cafe Tacvba was robbed of its instruments and gear Thursday morning on a highway in Mexico, with two crew members “brutally beaten” and kidnapped “for a time,” according to a statement.
A truck carrying the band’s gear was on its way to Cancun for a concert tonight. The robbery took place on a highway in the Mexican state of Puebla while en route to the city of Cordoba in Veracruz. The highway is well-known for robberies and assaults.
No details about the condition of the crew members were available at press time. The band said in a statement that it was working with state and federal authorities to recover the equipment and intends to play the show this evening.
The Latin Grammy- and Grammy-winning band was formed about 30 years ago.
The Mexcian government recently announced that one of its main priorities of a newly formed national guard will be protecting the nation’s highways.
