An upcoming show in Cincinnati has been suspended.

Rockers Greta Van Fleet have postponed their March 29 show at the Heritage Bank Center in Cincinnati as guitarist Jake Kiszka continues to recover from pneumonia. The group announced the postponement of Cincinnati – and all dates through April 4 – via social media on March 21. New tour dates will be announced soon and current tickets will be honored. More information is available on the Heritage Banking Center website.

Last week, Greta Van Fleet postponed a number of shows after Jake and her twin brother singer Josh Kiszka fell ill. Josh Kiszka quickly began to recover, but Jake Kiszka was diagnosed with pneumonia and was hospitalized for four days, according to the band. social posts.

The Cincinnati show was to be part of Greta Van Fleet’s “Dreams in Gold” tour, announced in November. The tour began on March 10 and supports the band’s second album The Battle of Garden’s Gate.

In an interview this month with CityBeatbassist/keyboardist Sam Kiszka — brother to twins Jake and Josh — says the album, released last April, represents a major leap forward in the studio, thanks to producer Greg Kurstin.

“We were lucky with Greg,” says Kiszka CityBeat. “The first time in the studio, we started talking about albums, like Odessey and Oracle by Zombies, and Hans Zimmer Ambient sheet music and all the great western soundtracks and John Williams and his stuff. We recorded ‘Light My Love’ and put together this arrangement, and when that was done, we were like, ‘Yeah, that’s how we have to do this album.’

The Battle of Garden’s Gate represents an important evolutionary step for Greta Van Fleet as she embarks on a path that will likely see even more growth. It’s an impressive leap for a second album.

“All that came before garden gate was minimalism,” says Kiszka. “It was pretty stripped down, nothing was buried, you could hear every instrument and every overdub crystal clear. It was great for what it was, but the album we really wanted to make, we wouldn’t have got us out of it from the get-go…pun accidental. garden gate is almost like the soundtrack of a movie that wasn’t created. It’s big screen. It’s cinematic.
