Greta Van Fleet to Embark on 2017 U.S. Headlining Tour
Rising rockers Greta Van Fleet are getting ready to kick off a three-week headlining tour across the U.S. The band's gritty and infectious debut track "Highway Tune" has been turning heads and generating plenty of buzz including a spot in our Best Rock Songs of 2017 (So Far).
The tour starts Aug. 15 in Columbus, Ohio. In addition to these newly announced tour dates, the young band comprised of brothers Josh (vocals), Jake (guitars), and Sam Kiszka (bass, keyboards) and close friend Danny Wagner (drums) will play a special Los Angeles performance that is open to the public at The Viper Room on Tuesday, July 25. The full itinerary is below, and tickets are on sale now. Go to gretavanfleet.com for all ticketing details.
At these headlining shows, fans can expect to hear all four songs from Greta Van Fleet's critically-praised debut EP Black Smoke Rising as well as selections from the 25-plus additional songs already written. "Each of our songs has its own gravity," says guitarist Jake Kiszka. “And we're really excited for people to hear the diversity of more than just the four songs that have been released."
Greta Van Fleet's music is generating praise for its high energy, sexy bravado and strong musical chops. The band describes their music as infused with the simple message of peace, love and unity. "It's important for all of us to personally identify with what we're doing," Jake says. "To have our music stand for something and affect people in a positive way. We'd love for anyone who comes to our concerts to take that positive energy generated back out into the world and make it their own."
