Southbound put out an APB on Laser Hands offering up VIP tickets in exchange for the stolen goods. Turns out that while stealing the hands may have been easy, transporting them around may have proven more difficult. From the Southbound Facebook:
“And in even more AMAZING NEWS, The Flaming Lips missing hands have been found! Stolen by some dork, and dumped unceremoniously in a nearby paddock, they have been located by our site crew and are intact and on their way back to the band.”
