US rock band the Foo Fighters are suing insurers for failing to reimburse them for European shows they cancelled following the Paris terrorist attacks in November.

The lawsuit against underwriters with Lloyd's of London and loss adjuster Robertson Taylor, alleges the band headed by Dave Grohl is owed for shows they called off in Turin, Italy; Paris and Lyon in France; and Barcelona in Spain.

The band was to perform in those cities immediately after the November 13 attacks by Islamic State radicals that killed 130 people last year.
