Last night, I was at the Greta Van Fleet concert at Rogers Arena with my hubby Gerard and our friend Rochelle. We had a great time! The preopening act was Hannah Wicklund, and let me tell you; she is fucking AMAZING!!!!! I am a new massive fan of hers. Whenever she plays in Vancouver, I will be at the show and, if possible, with my camera. She was at least as good as Greta, and I loved them. Here is a list of Hannah Wicklund’s tour dates. If she gets close to you and you love bitchen rock with strong vocals and music that will grab you, see her.
The Pretty Reckless was the main supporting act, I guess. Not my style of music and not a band I am going to go out of my way to hear again. That said, I am a minority in that thinking. They had a lot of fans in the building, and they got them moving. They are loud and aggressive, which I can typically get into. But I didn’t connect with it.
Greta Van Fleet takes the stage at Rogers Arena. I’ll be honest. I went in, not expecting a lot. Hannah Wicklund woke me up, so I was in the mood but didn’t know what to expect from Greta. I’ve seen some live performances on tv, and they didn’t blow me away.
I have a new understanding. Josh Kiszka needs a couple of songs to warm up. Should I have expected that after all, wouldn’t we all? After the first couple, he blew me away from start to finish. They all did. I am a fan of each individually and even more as a group. Here is a set list and link to play those songs on Apple Music.
