GRETA VAN FLEET has been forced to cancel its performance tonight (Friday, July 1) at the Rock Werchter festival in Werchter, Belgium after a member of the band tested positive for COVID-19.
Earlier today, GRETA VAN FLEET released the following statement via social media: "To our beautiful fans in Belgium, Unfortunately a member of the band has tested positive for COVID and we will not be able to perform at Rock Werchter tonight. We are absolutely gutted to have made it through our entire European tour and not be able to play this last show. We will do our best to make it back to your remarkable country soon. With Love, Josh, Jake, Sam, and Daniel".
