Greta Van Fleet has been on a roll the past few weeks with the release of their new single, “When The Curtain Falls,” and their appearance on The Tonight Show. However, they’ve now had to take an unexpected break.
The band released the following statement over the weekend after having to back out of their set at New York’s Panorama Festival:
“It is with great dismay we must announce that we will no longer be able to see your lovely faces in NY at Panorama Festival.
Danny has been playing with injured fingers for the last two weeks, and they have not been able to heal properly. It has now reached a point where he cannot pick up a drumstick because of it. Therefore, there is no possible way for us to play today.
There’s no greater joy than sharing music, and we are disappointed to miss time spent with you. We promise to make it up to our fans in NYC this year. However, it is our top priority for Danny to heal from this injury and be able to play for all of you soon.”
GVF’s next gig is scheduled for tomorrow night (July 31) in Cleveland. So far, there hasn’t been any word of whether or not this gig is on as scheduled. Regardless, we wish Danny a speedy recovery and return to the stage.
