In answer to your first question:  Yes, the 80's rockers, Flock of Seagulls, is still touring.  In answer to your second question:  Yes, they we had enough money to afford $70K worth of band equipment.

And as you can see in the video below, that $70K worth of stuff was stollen along with their van.  The Gulls posted this on youtube:

Surveillance camera footage of A Flock of Seagulls 1999 Ford F-350 equipment van being stolen at 2:16 am on 7/21 from the Comfort Inn in Downey, CA. If you have any information please contact us on facebook at or the Downey Police Department.

As for the robbers it appears that ... "They ran.  They ran both night and day..."  (Sorry 'bout that)
