Foo Fighters settle lawsuit

Press Trust of India  |  Los Angeles 

Rockers the Foo Fighters have settled a lawsuit against bosses at Lloyd's of over payments for a string of cancelled shows.

Dave Grohl and his bandmates were scheduled to perform in and France in November last year, but axed the shows following the terrorist attacks in Paris on November 13, due to safety concerns.

They also reportedly experienced threats themselves following the attacks, when their website was hacked and an image of an Isis flag, an automatic weapon and a message reading, 'Be prepared,' was posted, according to TMZ.

The band had a clause in its policy and were seeking payment for losses for the cancelled shows.

The lawsuit, which also named bosses at brokerage firm Robertson Taylor as defendants, also pertained to three shows the band axed last year after Grohl's broke his leg at a show in Sweden.

The legal matter has now been settled and dismissed with prejudice, which means the band cannot refile the same claims at a later date. The settlement details are confidential.
