KLAQ Listeners React To A Possible Concert Cancellation
UPDATE: Greta Van Fleet have indeed had to postpone El Paso and other dates. Read their official statement here.
A health issue could jeopardize The El Paso Greta Van Fleet concert.
At this point in time, there are NO plans to cancel the Greta Van Fleet show scheduled for November 8th in the Don Haskins Center.
However, singer Josh Kiszka ruptured his eardrum and that has caused the band to cancel a few shows while he heals. The El Paso date falls right on the edge of the "healing window" predicted by the experts at the Mayo clinic.
They say ruptured eardrums take several weeks to heal on their own and Josh blew his out only ... give or take ... 3 weeks ago. Greta Van Fleet shows scheduled for tonight and tomorrow, (10/25-10/26), were just cancelled.
El Paso is, as of today, (10/25), only 14 days away so, things are getting a little tight. KLAQ listeners have had varied reactions to the possibility ... emphasis on "possibility" ... that we may be cancelled or rescheduled.
Comments on the KLAQ Facebook page have ranged from ambivalent to concerned to almost hopeful the show won't go as planned. Here are a few:
This one, Rj, has sort of a conspiracy theory about it ...
The band have taken some flack for their similarity to Led Zeppelin and Queen as well as their overall "classic rock" sound.
That, in case you haven't already figured it out, is why some of the comments are not exactly mean spirited but also couldn't really be labeled as "kind" either.
