The pandemic caused The Chicks’, formerly known as Dixie Chicks, to cancel their 2020 tour across North America. They went to their insurance companies to recover their losses, and all paid out except U.K. insurance company WRB Underwriting. The band’s touring company Tunashoe Tours has now sued WRB Underwriting over breach of contract for $6.6 million accusing the U.K. insurance company of refusing to cover losses. They claim that WRB wanted them to postpone their tour by a year to get out of paying the insurance feed.
Tunashoe Tours alleged that London-based WRB acted in “bad faith” and has “engaged in a ten-month campaign of repeated irrelevant questions and stall tactics” to avoid paying out the insurance for the tour.
