When asked recently about their role as opening band, Greta Van Fleet‘s bassist Sam Kiszka noted their approach:

I think really harnessing all of our energy to stand up to an act like Metallica that plays so loud with so much gusto. The reality is, we’re nothing like Metallica. In some strange world, we are grouped in the same genre in a way, but there is no through-line between our music and their music. There’s everything in between, so it creates kind of a very cool bill.

Metallica are currently scheduled to play a handful of dates in South America in April. The band is slated to play only two stadium shows in the U.S. this summer: Highmark Stadium in Buffalo, N.Y. and PNC Park in Pittsburgh, Pa., this August.
