After postponing their Australian swing due to singer Josh Kiszka’s upper respiratory infection, Greta Van Fleet has been forced to postpone an upcoming European tour as well. “We have some sincerely unfortunate news regarding our upcoming shows February 22 – March 17 and must announce a complete reschedule to this Fall,” the band wrote on Facebook.
“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 original purchased for the upcoming shows will now be valid for the rescheduled dates, which will kick off on Nov. 3 with a show at the Leeds O2 Academy in Leeds, England, with the month-long swing currently slated to wrap up on Nov. 26 with a show in Barcelona. “We are heartbroken in sharing this setback with you and hope you can understand this painful decision,” the band continued. “It will be extremely satisfying to reconcile this calamity by making the most of our time together in a healthier state.”
