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:
