Statement from Delorean

October 9, 2013


We’re happy to see that our friends escaped this horrible thing that’s happened to them safely and are on their way back home. We’ll have comments on the upcoming tour dates when the dust settles a bit, but in the meantime, below is a statement from Delorean regarding the last 72 hours.

From Delorean:

On Monday morning October 7th we received a phone call at our hotel room in Mexico City from a person posing as a hotel security officer. We were informed that there was a security threat at the hotel.

What followed for the next 30 hours was an experience where the threat of death was real due to the psychological manipulation inflicted on us by our kidnappers. Thanks to the fantastic work of the National Police in Spain, Ertzantza , Interpol and the Federal Police in Mexico, we were successfully rescued yesterday morning.

While it would be convenient to blame Mexico, that would not be sound. This could have occurred anywhere in the world. Our hope is that this situation will bring attention to the abuse that we were subjected to by our kidnappers, so that other travelers do not fall victim in the future.

This has been extremely difficult for us and our families. At this time we have no further comment and we ask that you respect our privacy so that we can return to normality in our lives.”
