Greta Van Fleet Postpone Tour Dates As Guitarist Battles Pneumonia

Greta Van Fleet have postponed eight remaining dates on their “Dreams in Gold” tour after guitarist Jake Kiszka was infected with pneumonia. Kiszka is recovering at home after being hospitalized for four days.

The Grammy-nominated rock band has been able to perform at only the first three shows on the 13-date tour, as both Jake and his twin brother and lead singer Josh Kiszka fell ill last week.

“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,” Greta Van Fleet said in a statement. “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,” the band added.

Rescheduled dates will be announced “as quickly as possible,” according to the band, as they are “determined to play these shows.”
