Foo Fighters suing insurance companies over cancelled gigs

Shows were cancelled after Dave Grohl broke his leg and following the Paris terror attacks

Foo Fighters are suing insurance companies Lloyds of London and Robertson Taylor over gigs that were cancelled after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg and last year’s terror attacks in Paris.

The US band have filed a lawsuit against the two companies that were insurers of their 2015 European tour.

Grohl broke a metatarsal onstage at a gig in Gothenburg during June 2015, leading to the cancellation of the band’s UK tour and Glastonbury headline appearance. Following the Bataclan attack last November, an additional four European shows were cancelled.

According to Billboard, Foo Fighters claim in the suit that Lloyds failed “to pay amounts that even they recognise are due and owing”.

They also say that Robertson Taylor failed to warn them that rescheduling their UK shows would affect any insurance claim.

Neither company have responded to Foo Fighters’ lawsuit.
