Lloyds of London allegedly won’t pay the Foo Fighters after they cancelled their Paris show due to the terrorist attack, despite the “terrorism” clause.
Last year, Foo Fighters canceled the remainder of their European tour following the November terrorist attack in Paris, France.
Now, the band is reportedly suing their insurance company for failing to pay them for the canceled shows, because their policy reportedly included a “terrorism” clause.
According to TMZ, the Foos are suing insurance company Lloyd’s of London for allegedly dodging payment. The lawsuit reportedly states that the band’s policy with Lloyd’s requires that the company cover the losses in the event that an act of terrorism forces a cancellation.
In cancelling their European tour, which included a show in Paris, Foo Fighters wrote,
“In light of this senseless violence, the closing of borders, and international mourning, we can’t continue right now. 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.”
