Greta Van Fleet Drop Off Rock Werchter Festival Due To Positive COVID-19 Test

Greta Van Fleet have cancelled their July 1 set at the Rock Werchter festival in Belgium due to a member of the band testing positive for COVID-19. The group commented:

“To our beautiful fans in Belgium, Unfortunately a member of the band has tested positive for COVID and we will not be able to perform at Rock Werchter tonight. We are absolutely gutted to have made it through our entire European tour and not be able to play this last show. We will do our best to make it back to your remarkable country soon. With Love, Josh, Jake, Sam, and Daniel”.

Greta Van Fleet Postpone More Shows As Guitarist Jake Kiszka Continues To Recover From Pneumonia

Greta Van Fleet have postponed their remaining shows between March 22 and April 2. This news comes after guitarist Jake Kiszka was recently hospitalized with pneumonia.

The band commented:

“We are disheartened to announce that the shows from March 22nd through April 2nd must be rescheduled for the health and safety of our brother, Jake.

We recognize how upsetting this news is and share your disappointment. While Jake has been discharged after being hospitalized for four days, he is still struggling with pneumonia and its symptoms. The healing process is long and slower than anticipated. Jake wanted to push through, however doctors have advised doing so could potentially lead to further complications and a longer recovery.

We are actively working on rescheduling and will share information about the new dates as quickly as possible. We are determined to play these shows.

To our fans in Madison, WI – unfortunately, the March 22nd performance must be canceled due to planned venue renovations later this year. However, we love you and your city, and will find a way to make it up to you. Refunds will be available at point of purchase.

To the fans, friends, and family that planned to travel great lengths to be with us – your unwavering support has not gone unnoticed. We appreciate your dedication, understanding, grace, and sympathy.

This is only the beginning of the tour and it is important for Jake to heal so the rest of ‘Dreams In Gold’ 2022 can continue as planned through the rest of the year, starting in South America.

Love and light, Jake, Josh, Sam, & Danny”

Greta Van Fleet Guitarist Jake Kiszka Hospitalized With Pneumonia

Greta Van Fleet guitarist Jake Kiszka has been hospitalized with pneumonia. As a result, the band have postponed their immediate live shows.

The band said the following in a statement that was issued yesterday (March 16):

“WE’RE HEARTBROKEN TO SHARE BOTH JAKE AND JOSH WOKE UP ILL THIS MORNING. WHILE COVID HAS BEEN RULED OUT, AFTER MEDICAL CONSULTATION, WE UNFORTUNATELY MUST RESCHEDULE TONIGHT’S SHOW IN FLINT AND TOMORROW’S SHOW IN YPSILANTI TO THE FALL.

THE FLINT SHOW WILL NOW TAKE PLACE ON SEPTEMBER 13TH AND YPSILANTI ON SEPTEMBER 14TH. ALL TICKETS FROM THE RE-SCHEDULED SHOWS WILL BE HONORED AND REFUNDS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT POINT OF PURCHASE.

THIS HAS BEEN THE MOST UPLIFTING AND MAGNIFICENT START TO TOUR, SO WE ARE DISAPPOINTED TO MAKE THIS ANNOUNCEMENT. WE PLAN RESUME THE DREAMS IN GOLD 2022 TOUR AS SCHEDULED IN HUNTINGTON, WV ON MARCH 19TH. THANK YOU FOR YOUR GRACE, UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORT.”

They then shared the following update today (March 17):

“THANK YOU FOR YOUR PATIENCE AFTER YESTERDAY’S UNFORTUNATE NEWS. WE HAVE AN UPDATE ON THE BAND’S HEALTH:

WHILE JOSH HAS MOSTLY RECOVERED, JAKE’S DIAGNOSIS IS MORE COMPLEX. WHAT STARTED AS A SMALL COUGH ON TUESDAY RAPIDLY PROGRESSED OVERNIGHT, REQUIRING HIS ADMISSION TO THE HOSPITAL YESTERDAY. THE LAST 24 HOURS HAVE BEEN ARDUOUS AS DOCTORS WERE UNSURE OF THE EXACT ILLNESS. FORTUNATELY, AFTER FURTHER EVALUATION, THEY ARE CONFIDENT IN THEIR DIAGNOSIS OF PNEUMONIA AND AN OPTIMAL COURSE OF TREATMENT HAS BEEN DETERMINED.

DUE TO THE UNCERTAINTY OF HIS TIME TO RECOVER, WE REGRETFULLY MUST POSTPONE SATURDAY’S SHOW IN HUNTINGTON, WV UNTIL AUGUST 10. TICKETS FOR THE ORIGINAL SHOW WILL BE VALID FOR THE RESCHEDULED PERFORMANCE AND REFUNDS WILL BE AVAILABLE AT POINT OF PURCHASE.

WE ARE GRATEFUL FOR YOUR KINDNESS AND APPRECIATE YOUR POSITIVE SUPPORT DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME. WE PROMISE TO GIVE YOU THE MOST UP TO DATE INFORMATION AS THE SITUATION PROGRESSES.”
