January 2016

Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger is reportedly being sued for failing to disclose the pre-existing throat condition which forced the group to cancel a string of concerts. The band cancelled more than 60 shows earlier this year when Kroeger had a cyst surgically removed from his vocal cords and the cancellations were put in place to allow Kroeger an “extended period of vocal rest”


This resulted in a $13 million claim to cover losses for the cancelled concerts but TMZ reports that  documents from insurers argue the singer had the condition prior to taking out his policy but never disclosed this. Lloyd’s of London is now suing to cancel the policy, according to the report.


At the time the band said “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.
