The Daimaru department store in Kyoto, Japan, has reported that nine items of Michael concert tour memorabilia have been stolen on July 8th and 9th.
The items, worth about 169,000 Yen, include a pamphlet signed by Michael’s concert tour staff and a limited-edition gold disc. The Kyoto police are investigating the case.
The department store held the sales event from late June, offering about one thousand products related to Michael, including his autograph for 400,000 Yen. Customers were able to freely touch the items. “This is the place where fans come to enjoy seeing the goods and it’s a shame that such thoughtless acts have happened here,” an official at the store said.
