Nickelback nixed more than 60 shows earlier this year when Kroeger had a cyst surgically removed from his vocal cords and took extended time away from the stage to heal.
Kroeger then filed a $13 million claim to cover losses for the canceled concerts, according to TMZ, which cites documents from insurers which argue he had the condition prior to taking out his policy but never mentioned it.
Lloyd’s of London is suing to cancel the policy, according to the report.
The band announced in late June it had canceled a run of North American dates because its frontman needed surgery. The group later scrapped its European leg – more than 30 shows – to allow Kroeger an “extended period of vocal rest.” “Most of all, we are sorry to miss our fans out on the road this fall, but Chad’s health, healing and full recovery are what is most important right now,” read a statement issued by the band in August.
There was no comment at deadline from Universal Music, parent of Republic, the label behind Nickelback’s most recent album release No Fixed Address.
