The lounge was filled with iconic souvenirs, three of which were taken from the display. in addition to the APMAs award, a robe Brendon Urie wore in the music video for “Victorious” and a rare polaroid from 2007 were also swiped.

Tour manager Zack Hall first tweeted about the incident in August 2018, stating the Polaroid was stolen. However, several hours later, the photo was returned.

Hall brought up the “Victorious” robe and APMAs award in September, and the latter item finally made its way back to P!ATD.

Tonight, Hall posted a photo of the award, which was suspiciously broken in half, on Instagram, along with a note.

Went and emptied out the fan mail P.O. Box and look what was in there. I guess even though it’s broke in half, at least we got it back….?” the caption read.

As far as the note, it is addressed to Urie and is extremely apologetic.

“I am so sorry for taking this, and regardless if it’s just a prop or not, I sincerely apologize with all my being,” the note reads. “I was extremely drunk and made a very poor decision while in this state. Since then, I have felt beyond unsettled about the matter. Both as a person and a musician, you have impacted my life tremendously.”

“Ever since I would listen to Fever and Pretty Odd on my 8th grade bus rides, I knew my life was changed,” it continues. “Best wishes on the rest of this tour and your future endeavors.”

As for the robe, Hall also clarified that the item is still missing in the comments of the post about the award’s return.

A fan asked, “did you guys ever get the victirious robe back??” to which he offered a simple, “nope.”
