Dante Decaro is reunited with his stripy top after spotting it in the crowd at their London show...

Hot Hot Heat‘s DANTE DECARO had an emotional reunion last night (October 29)… with his trademark stripy jumper!

The jumper had been stolen when the band played at the Leeds Festival in August. As Hot Hot Heat performed at London Astoria last night, guitarist Decaro spotted the jumper in the crowd. The revered knitwear was then returned to its rightful owner.

The band, currently in the middle of a UK tour with Franz Ferdinand and The Fiery Furnaces, release the double A-side single ‘Talk To Me, Dance With Me’/‘Oh, Goddamnit’ on November 3, the third single to be taken from ‘Make Up The Breakdown’.

Norwich Waterfront (October 30)

Liverpool Barfly (31)

Sheffield Leadmill (November 1)

Newcastle University (3)

Nottingham Rock City (5)
