Greta Van Fleet is no longer performing Friday at Belgium’s Rock Werchter due to a “member of the band” testing positive for COVID-19.

“We are absolutely gutted to have made it through our entire European tour and be able to play this last show,” the “Highway Tune” rockers write in a statement. “We will do our best to make it back to your remarkable country soon.”

Health issues previously affected Greta Van Fleet earlier this year when guitarist Jake Kiszka was hospitalized with pneumonia in the middle of the group’s spring U.S. tour. The remaining dates on the run were postponed.

Greta Van Fleet has been touring in support of the band’s sophomore album, 2021’s The Battle at Garden’s Gate. They plan to return to the road later this month when their U.S. tour resumes July 23 in Omaha, Nebraska.
