Beloved US rock outfit Halestorm have confirmed they’re all safe following a fire that tore through their tour bus.

Currently on tour with Evanescence and in Massachusetts, guitarist Joe Hottinger has revealed via Instagram that the band had been in their hotel rooms when they awoke at 3am to their bus “burning down”.

He confirmed that thankfully “no one was hurt”.

“The Worcester fire department got there and put the fire out. They were amazing,” Hottinger said.

“Our fearless security Steve pulled guitars and luggage out of the bay. We all lost some stuff, but it was just stuff.

“The investigator doesn’t know what started it, but it began in the bunk hall. What matters is that no one was hurt. The best part is that tonight, we will rock.
