Greta Van Fleet Postpone European Tour

Greta Van Fleet have been forced to reschedule their European tour. The postponment comes as a result of Josh Kiszka suffering from an upper respiratory infection.

The band commented:

“Dear European Fans,

We have some sincerely unfortunate news regarding our upcoming shows February 22 – March 17 and must announce a complete reschedule to this Fall.

A year and a half of constant touring has been both invigorating and exhausting. Josh currently has a relentless upper respiratory infection that has not yet had the chance to heal. His doctor has required extended rest as the only path to full recovery.

It now feels necessary for the entire band to recalibrate our balance, both physically and mentally. Rather than continuing on to more performances and exacerbate things further, we have made this decision in order to give you the full Greta Van Fleet experience when we meet again.

All tickets for the upcoming shows in the next month will transfer to the rescheduled dates, there is no need to do anything other than hold on to your current ticket to attend the rescheduled show. Refunds are available at point of purchase should you not be able to attend.

We are heartbroken in sharing this setback with you and hope you can understand this painful decision. It will be extremely satisfying to reconcile this calamity by making the most of our time together in a healthier state. All dates are listed below. For the cities that have not been assigned a date yet, we are waiting on venue availability, but will have them confirmed and announced tomorrow. Every show missed will take place, that is a promise. We are tremendously grateful for your patience.

With sincere love,
Greta Van Fleet”

Greta Van Fleet Cancel Australian Shows Due To Josh Kiszka’s Laryngitis

Greta Van Fleet have been forced to cancel their immediate Australian dates due to singer Josh Kiszka suffering from laryngitis. The group are planning on making up the shows at later date. Refunds are currently available.

Kiszka commented:

“Dearest Melbourne fans,

I have some heartbreaking news. Unfortunately, somewhere between travel from the U.S. to Japan and Australia, I developed an upper respiratory infection that has gradually evolved into laryngitis. I’ve been trying to recover, but cannot seem to get rid of it. Doctors have informed me that performing in this condition could cause damage to my vocal cords, which is something that I cannot risk, and therefore we must reschedule our shows tonight and tomorrow.

It means the world to me to be able to perform for you, and it breaks my heart to have to do this, but I must take my health very seriously, so as to not run the risk of causing more serious harm.

I am terribly sorry to make this announcement. We are already working on a momentous return to make this up to you and will be announcing that very soon.

I hope you can understand. This has been a difficult situation and disappointing for us all.”
