“It’s the best rock and roll I’ve heard in 20 f**king years.
These guys are so talented, they take my breath away.”— Sir Elton John
One of rock’s most headline-making bands of the last year is on the road again, heading to Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre 5/15. After non-stop touring in 2018 across the States and internationally in early 2019, with a majority of sold-out dates, Greta Van Fleet brings the “March Of The Peaceful Army World Tour” back to the U.S. with 18 stops, from Miami to Madison, including festival appearances at Boston Calling and Bunbury. It’s been a wild few months for the four-piece from Frankenmuth, Michigan, after the release of their debut album, “Anthem of the Peaceful Army”(Lava/Republic) in October, has continued to dominate charts. Their latest single, “You’re The One” is the band’s fourth No. 1 entrance onto the Billboard charts and the album in full landed at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 chart when it was released.
“Anthem of the Peaceful Army” was collectively written by all four band members, producing ten original songs that explore a variety of topics that include fresh starts, love, integrity, innocence, adventure, diversity and peace, the life cycle and its inherent responsibilities, courage, masked deceptions, revolution and truth. Blending rock, soul and blues, Jake’s blazing guitar riffs, Josh’s soaring, powerful vocals, Danny’s thunderous drums, and Sam’s swaggering basslines and keys, it creates a menagerie of musical elements.
In addition to their debut performance on “Saturday Night Live” in January, Greta Van Fleet was honored with fourGrammy Award nominations for “Best Rock Song,” “Best Rock Performance,” “Best New Artist” and ultimately winning the award for “Best Rock Album” at the February award show, for their sophomore EP, “From The Fires” that birthed the hit “Highway Tune.” The Pollstar Awards also named the band the “2019 Best New Headliner.”
