Greta Van Fleet announced a fall North American arena tour. The lengthy outing launches August 11 in Buffalo — the first of two opening dates for Metallica — and wraps Nov. 12 in Sacramento, Calif.

A fan presale for the headlining shows begins March 2, followed by a local venue presale on March 3 and a general sale on March 4 at noon local time. Fans can sign up for the presale at the Peaceful Army website.

Openers for various dates include the Pretty Reckless, Houndmouth, Crown Lands, Robert Finley, Fruit Bats, Durand Jones & the Indications and Hannah Wicklund. The fall dates follow the band’s sold-out spring Dreams in Gold tour, which opens March 10 in Kalamazoo, Mich., continuing with dates in Mexico, Sweden, France, Germany, Ireland and the U.K.

The upcoming shows support Greta Van Fleet’s second LP, 2021’s The Battle at Garden’s Gate. Following the release of that album, the Darkness singer Justin Hawkins released "This Is How You Properly Critique Greta Van Fleet," a YouTube video detailing how he once dismissed them as a "tribute act" conjuring "a certain period of Led Zeppelin."

But after hearing Garden’s Gate, he changed his mind: “They look awesome and I feel like he’s using his voice in a slightly different way,” he said. “Now I listen I go, ‘Yeah, OK, these guys are heading somewhere.’ I don’t know what the second influence is — who’s got a hold of them and shaken that faux Led Zep out of them. But it’s working. … Hearing [Josh Kiszka] soar and hold a note over several bars — that’s what he wants to be doing. Because those are the things Robert Plant didn’t do.”
