Last year, the Foo Fighters cancelled the remainder of their European tour after the terror attacks in Paris took place on November 13th. “It is with profound sadness and heartfelt concern for everyone in Paris that we have been forced to announce the cancellation of the rest of our tour,” the band said in a statement.
Eight months later, they are still waiting to get paid for the gigs, according to TMZ. The Foo Fighters have reportedly filed a lawsuit against their insurance company, Lloyd’s of London, for failing to honor the terrorism clause in their insurance policy.
The band, like many others who were scheduled to perform in Europe following the attacks, feared for their lives and the lives of their fans, and therefore decided to cancel the four remaining dates of their tour. TMZ is also reporting that the Foo Fighters were directly targeted the day after the attacks, claiming that their tour website was hacked with images of an ISIS flag, an automatic weapon, and the threatening words “Be prepared.”
