Sam Kiszka of Greta Van Fleet plays the Austin City Limits Music Festival in October 2021. The band's concert on Wednesday at the Resch Center has been postponed due to illness.

ASHWAUBENON – Greta Van Fleet is still headed to the Resch Center, but it won’t be on Wednesday.

The Grammy-winning rock band has postponed more dates on its newly launched Dreams in Gold Tour after announcing last week that guitarist Jake Kiszka was hospitalized with pneumonia.

The Resch Center concert, which was to be the band’s first visit to Green Bay, will be rescheduled but no new date has been set. Current tickets will be honored at the new date.

It’s among the latest round of shows through April 2 to be postponed as Kiszka, who is now out of the hospital, recovers.

"While Jake has been discharged after being hospitalized for four days, he is still struggling with pneumonia and its symptoms," the band wrote in Monday's announcement. "The healing process is long and slower than anticipated. Jake wanted to push through, however doctors have advised doing so could potentially lead to further complications and a longer recovery."

The Resch Complex shared the band's 's full announcement on its Facebook page and wrote: "Our date will be rescheduled. Date is TBD. This is all we know of, at this moment."

The band's other Wisconsin stop, a Tuesday concert at the Kohl Center in Madison, has been canceled due to planned renovations at the venue later this year.

Last week, Greta Van Fleet postponed shows Wednesday in Flint and Thursday in Ypsilanti, both in the band's home state of Michigan, posting on social media that Kiszka and his brother, lead singer Josh Kiszka, “woke up ill” on Wednesday. The announcement said “COVID has been ruled out.”

On Thursday, the band postponed Saturday’s show in Huntington, West Virginia. It wrote that while Josh had mostly recovered, for Jake, what started out as “a small cough on Tuesday rapidly progressed overnight, requiring his admission to the hospital” and that doctors, initially unsure of the exact illness, were “confident in their diagnosis of pneumonia."

Greta Van Fleet is touring in support of the group’s second full-length album, “The Battle at Garden’s Gate,” released in April.
