Greta Van Fleet have postponed the remainder of the first leg of their Dreams in Gold North America tour after guitarist Jake Kiszka was hospitalized with pneumonia last week.

The announcement comes after the band revealed Jake and Josh Kiszka had both fallen ill earlier last week, leading to the postponement of shows in Flint and Ypsilanti, Michigan on March 16 and 17, respectively. While Josh has since largely recovered, Jake's diagnosis was “more complex”, the band said on Thursday (March 17).
