Greta Van Fleet is postponing shows in Raleigh, Greenville, and Jacksonville.

Vocalist Josh Kiszka issued a statement saying, “To our fans in Raleigh, Greenville, and Jacksonville, it’s with a heavy heart that we must reschedule our shows this upcoming week.”

He went on to explain, “During our last show in Bangor, I ruptured an eardrum and upon further evaluation I have just been advised it needs more time to fully heal than initially anticipated. I’m working closely with my team to ensure I get proper rest in order to finish out the year strong. We are working on rescheduling these shows and will announce the new dates as soon as possible. I’m gutted to have to do this, and I cannot begin to express how much I appreciate the love and support you give us every night. It’s devastating me to make this announcement but know it’s imperative in order to keep performing.”

The Billboard Hot 100’s “Heat Waves” by Glass Animals is now the only song to spend 91 weeks on the chart in its 64-year history. “Heat Waves” surpasses The Weeknd’s “Blinding Lights” (in 2019–21), which has held the record since August 2021.

Glass Animals frontman Dave Bayley was in awe of the accomplishment of the band and told Billboard, “Wow, all I can say is wow. Many of you know when I wrote this song, I was writing about missing someone I loved very dearly. Never in my wildest dreams did I think that it would lead to so much love and connection across the globe.”
