Greta Van Fleet Cancel UK And European Tour

Greta Van Fleet have cancelled their upcoming tour of the UK and Europe due to ongoing health issues with vocalist Josh Kiszka.

The band were recently forced to postpone their Australian run due to Josh suffering an upper respiratory infection, and he has failed to recover in time for the European leg.

Posting a statement on Facebook, Greta Van Fleet say, "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."

The shows have been rescheduled for November-time, with exact dates for some shows still to be determined.

"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," the statement continues.

"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.

"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."

Greta Van Fleet recently won Best Rock Album at this year's GRAMMYs for their From The Fires record. Earlier this year, bassist Sam Kiszka revealed that the band would have another album out in 2019.
