The papier mâché head worn by Arcade Fire band member Richard Reed Parry as part of the band’s live show has gone missing.

The stage prop was taken during Reflektor Tour show in Bridgeport, Connecticut on March 18.

A statement from the band, relayed by Brooklyn Vegan, states that the band have photos of the theft in progress. They are appealing for the return of the mask.

The statement reads: “Richy’s bobblehead mask was taken from our show in Bridgeport, CT. This mask is a one of a kind piece that is an essential component to our live show. We have photos of the theft but rather than press charges we would prefer if the person who took it would get in touch with us to return it. Perhaps this is all an innocent mistake and you meant to leave the venue with your own oversized paper mache rendition of Richard Parry‘s head? Please contact: info@quest-management.com with any information.”

Arcade Fire are set to bring their tour to the UK in June, where they’ll play three shows at London’s Earls Court on June 6 and 7. They have also been announced as Friday night’s headliner at Glastonbury, which takes place between June 25 and 29.
