State Champs Lose Their Bus Driver; Hire Out Mini Vans To Continue Tour

By  | 

Your favorite pop punkers State Champs ran into a little trouble yesterday when they experienced a unique inconvenience after their bus driver Gator allegedly went missing after their show in Las Vegas.

Unfortunately, Gator’s absence from the us meant that the boys in State Champs had to find another way to their next show in Phoenix, Arizona and they were definitely not stoked.

State Champs then took to Twitter with hope to locate their missing Gator, and even offered merch and cash rewards for whoever had any information regarding his location.

After hours of searching, State Champs then took it upon themselves and rented out two mini vans for their next journey from Vegas to Phoenix, taking all the gear they could fit inside each mini van.

State Champs then naturally continued on with theitr hashtagging Twitter frenzy, involving fans in the #whereisgator search.



As the result of the unfortunate – yet humerous event, State Champs continued to their show in Phoenix, Arizona and performed using gear primarily owned by fellow tour mates With Confidence and Against The Current.

Here’s hoping that someday Gator will return and the band can rest easy knowing their bus is safe.

You can catch State Champs on tour now with special guests With Confidence, Don Broco and Against The Current.
