DOWNEY, Calif. (AP) -- The 1980s band A Flock of Seagulls says someone flew off with $70,000 of its equipment during a Southern California gig.

Frontman Mike Score tells the Los Angeles Daily News that someone stole the band's rented van at around 2 a.m. Sunday from the Comfort Inn in Downey.

Hotel video recorded the theft. Score believes the band was followed from a Saturday night show in Bellflower.

Score says the stolen gear included stage clothing, guitars, drums, a keyboard and hard drives containing the songs for his first solo album -- 18 months of work gone.

The band used rented equipment to perform at another show Sunday and is leaving for London to continue its tour.

A Flock of Seagulls is best known for its 1982 hit "I Ran (So Far Away)."
