Grammy-winning Michigan rockers Greta Van Fleet have announced the three-week North American leg of their ‘March Of The Peaceful Army’ tour for the fall of 2019.

Kicking off in Kansas City on Saturday, 21 September, the tour will include first-time visits to Kansas City and Irvine, with the band performing a blend of fan-favorites and some brand new tunes. Shannon & The Clams, a GVF personal pick, will support on all dates. Pre-sales for Peaceful Army fan-club members begin Wednesday, 15 May, and the public on-sale starts Friday, May 17 at 10 a.m. local time. For more information, please visit the band’s official website.

Greta Van Fleet — Josh Kiszka on vocals, Jake Kiszka on guitar, Sam Kiszka on bass and keyboards, and Danny Wagner on drums — kicked off 2019 with sold-out shows on the band’s first-time tours of Japan, Australia, South America, and Mexico. The group are currently on a four-week tour of North America and will then head to Europe on 27 June to play a series of major outdoor festivals and some stand-alone headline dates.

Greta Van Fleet’s debut album, Anthem Of The Peaceful Army, landed at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart in July 2018, while in December, the band scored four Grammy Award nominations, one for each major rock category — Best Rock Album, Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance — and a Best New Artist nod.

    Hmph. “The Song Remains The Same” indeed. Of course some idiots think if somebody wins Grammys then it MUST be good because it’s all about sales and the tremendous amount of money pouring in to the labels. I’m the last person to deny a band their due just because they show their influences. Aerosmith were really into the Yardbirds and Stones. Countless bands loved the blues. Black Sabbath was responsible for the doom genre because they were so unique and appealing and Judas Priest can claim they were at least co-founders of what would become thrash, death and power metal i.e., the bands that weren’t direct Sabbath offspring.
    But like Kingdom Come, Greta Van Fleet is a band of clones, and only have appeal because some people think they’re the new Zeppelin, when in reality they’re shameless imitators. They are a fad, and maybe if they try something truly original next time around they might escape that Zeppelin clone tag, but I doubt it. Take a band like Wolfmother, which for all intent and purposes is Andrew Stockdale – sure, a song like “Woman” was pure Zep, but he is far more than just that.
    GVF will be around, maybe longer than I think, but what is the point of listening to them when I can listen to Zeppelin? And Robert Plant’s solo career has been absolutely amazing. If I want blatant rip off imitators, I’ll go watch an impersonator at a comedy club or go up to Branson and see the equally pathetic Elvis clones.
