Josh Kiszka of Greta Van Fleet breaks his eardrum during performance and band postpones shows
Greta Van Fleet had to postpone some shows on their tour due to vocalist Josh Kiszka’s health problem. The musician ruptured his eardrum during a recent concert by the band in Bangor, Maine, on October 8th.
In a statement on social media, the singer informed the postponement of three performances that would take place this week, in Raleigh, Greenville and Jacksonville, on the 18th, 19th and 21st respectively. Read the translation below:
“It is with a heavy heart that we need to reschedule our shows this week. During our last performance in Bangor I ruptured an eardrum and upon further evaluation I have just been informed that it takes longer to fully heal than anticipated initially. I’m working collaboratively with my team to ensure adequate rest to end the year strong.”
“We are working to reschedule these shows and will announce the new dates as soon as possible. If you still want to see the show on the new date, just keep your ticket and it will be valid. If you want a refund, they will be available at the point of purchase as soon as the new dates are announced. I am devastated to have to do this and cannot express how much I appreciate the love and support you give us each night. It is devastating for me to make this announcement, but I know it is imperative to continue acting. Thank you for staying with us at all times and I look forward to seeing all of your lovely faces soon. Love, Josh,” he added.
The band is expected to return to the stage in October for a performance at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida, and touring the US through December.
