Canceled Deep Purple Concerts Lead to Bad Faith Lawsuit

A lawsuit alleges that insurance provider Beazley Insurance Services denied coverage of two Deep Purple show cancelations in 2018 after failing to investigate the claim sufficiently.

Big Draw Entertainment (BDE), the financial backer for the Deep Purple concert tour in Mexico, filed the lawsuit against Beazley and Everest Indemnity Insurance for bad faith and breach of contract.

Big Draw accuses the insurer of conducting a sub-par investigation into their claim that was ‘limited in nature and narrow in scope’ -- that the inadequacy demonstrated a ‘predetermined intent’ to deny its claim.

‘Defendants did not search the policy for grounds for coverage that would protect BDE but rather searched policy and conducted its investigation for the purpose of finding a basis to deny coverage,’ alleges Big Draw, stating it obtained an ‘event cancelation insurance policy’ from Beazley that would reimburse it for losses relating to so much as a ‘potential cancelation, abandonment, disruption, or rescheduling of any of the shows.’
