Greta Van Fleet played the second of nine rescheduled shows at Hard Rock Live in Hollywood, Florida on Wednesday, March 8th. The shows were make-up dates for canceled shows after singer John Kiszka ruptured an eardrum. The tour is in support of 2021’s The Battle At Garden’s Gate album.
Dressed in retro skin-tight jumpsuits and sporting bare feet, the Kiszka brothers and drummer Daniel Wagner tore through a setlist of just twelve songs, each performed with the pomp and aggression the rockers are known for. The stage was drenched in red and blue lights and featured huge fire pots along the rear, this was classic rock and roll at its finest.
The musicianship was tight and dripping with energy as the brothers sang and shredded their way across the stage while Wagner kept the syncopated beat from behind the kit. The set opened with a rocking “Built By Nations” off the latest album, The Battle At Garden’s Gate, before moving right into “Black Smoke Rising” from the From The Fires EP (QRO review). Next up was the ever-popular “Safari Song”, also from From The Fires. The remainder of the setlist was primarily from the newest record and one from Anthem of the Peaceful Army (QRO review).
The performance was an incredible night of music and the crowd, standing for most of the show, put their appreciation on full display.
