Foo Fighters will sue insurers for the concerts they were forced to cancel in late 2015 following the terror attacks in Paris last November.
In the suit, which was filed against underwriters with Lloyd’s of London and loss adjuster Robertson Taylor, the band claims that the insurers are owed money for the European shows the Foo Fighters canceled because of both the Paris attacks and the broken leg that frontman Dave Grohl suffered during a concert in Sweden.
Following the attacks in Paris which left 130 people dead, including 89 at an Eagles of Death Metal concert at the Bataclan, the Foo Fighters expressed their sympathies.
“In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now,” the band said in a statement. “There is no other way to say it. This is crazy and it sucks. Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone who was hurt or who lost a loved one.”
