There are few bands that manage to bridge the generation gap. Greta Van Fleet is one of those bands. Fans young and old gathered on Sunday night at to witness the first of two nights of their sold out performances at The Fox Theatre with London band Ida Mae as the opener. Vocalist Josh Kiszka strutted out stage right with bouquets of white roses to toss out to his adoring fans.
The boys started out with their song “Safari Song” which is on their 2018 album, Anthem of the Peaceful Army, followed by what seemed to be a five minute drum solo by Danny Wagner. They burned through their 90 minute set with songs like “”Watching Over”, “Lover, Leaver (Taker, Believer)” and a personal favorite, “When the Curtain Falls”. In between songs, Josh interacted with fans but unfortunately it was a little hard to hear what he was saying over the screaming fans but I’m sure it was nothing but gratitude to be there.
Looking forward to witness what will be next for for these hard working lads.
