The Gaslight Anthem cancel show due to robbery

The Gaslight Anthem cancelled their show at the Helsinki's Tavastia last night due to a robbery.

The band had their van broken into the previous night in Gothenburg. Drummer Benny had put out a statement on the bands MySpace:

'Crap! No Helsinki show. We were robbed the night after our Gothenburg show at a local hotel. Gunnar and I woke up to three windows smashed out and the back door shredded from prying. Luckily, nothing very valuable was taken, but, we had to get reports from Swedish police who were slow as fuck, and missed our ferry by minutes! We literally raced down the highways, freezing cold, for five hours and parked to watch it pull away. We're super bummed. We were all really looking forward to this show and pissed that this happened. We're sincerely sorry this happened. But, I guess this one was out of our reach. We'll keep you posted on any happening/reschedules involved with the show.'
