Greta Van Fleet Saw Something Surprising At Chris Cornell Death Venue


By now you’ve probably heard of Greta Van Fleet, the rock band is selling out shows across the world from Paris to Japan.
But they originated in Frankenmuth.

Greta Van Fleet recently played at the Fox Theatre in Detroit, where Chris Cornell played his final show with Soundgarden on May 17, 2017 before dying just an hour later at an adjacent hotel.

Greta Van Fleet guitarist Jake Kiszka says his major memory though isn’t a rock show like Soundgarden, but something surprising, seeing The Lion King.

“Probably 10 or 11 and I remember coming to see the Lion King here, and I was sitting there like, some day I’m going to play here,” says Jake Kiszka, the guitarist for Greta Van Fleet in a new ABC 12 interview.

The article also states, “Playing at the Fox Theater is a dream venue for many musicians, but for Michigan native’s Greta Van Fleet, 3 sold out shows in Detroit was more than they ever could have imagined.”

“Coming home and having the response, there’s a bit more expected but we’re like maybe it will sell out over a period of time, but when it happens within minutes, it’s overwhelming,” Kiszka says. “It’s good to be home.”

Brothers Jake, Josh and Sam Kiszka and close friend Danny Wagner began playing together while attending Frankenmuth High School, and now they’re nominated for four Grammys.

    Clickbait garbage. Absolute garbage. You’re the worst. Also, love how you just assume people know where Frankenmuth is and start that sentence with “But”. The worst. Blocking this piece of trash site.

    Death venue?

    First, Chris didn’t die there.

    And secondly, it’s disrespectful to say something like that.

    This article sounds like a 10 year old wrote it. Terrible transitions, awful verbal diarrhea, absurd and asinine clickbait title. Terrible excuse for journalism. Hell, terrible writing in general.
