Returning to the road in North America, Lenny Kravitz will launch the third leg of his 2018 world tour on September 21st at Chastain in Atlanta, GA. As part of the tour, he performs in major markets across the United States and stops at Bourbon & Beyond Festival in Louisville, KY on September 22nd before concluding the jaunt at The Palladium in Los Angeles, CA on October 8th. He will be joined by opening act Curtis Harding on select dates. Tickets go on-sale July 27th. Check out the confirmed itinerary below.
The iconic artist will be touring in support of his upcoming album, Raise Vibration, available on CD and LP September 7th via BMG. Each ticket purchased includes a physical copy of the project with an option for upgrading to a vinyl copy.
Introducing this next musical chapter, he preceded the record’s arrival with a pair of two new anthems thus far. The seven-minute plus opus “It’s Enough” twists and turns through percussive unrest, straining striking vocals through a hypnotic haze. It quickly crossed the one million mark on Spotify and earned critical applause with The Guardian writing, “it expands into a soulful, smooth reverie.” Propelled by a hummable funk riff and background falsetto from his late friend Michael Jackson, the follow-up single “Low” quickly drummed up 1.8 million Spotify streams in a few weeks’ time. The minimalist Jean-Baptiste Mondino-helmed music video spotlights Kravitz pounding out what Rolling Stone described as a “sensual groove.” Highlighting his penchant for pushing boundaries, these tracks just scratch the surface of what to expect on Raise Vibration.
On his eleventh full-length album, Raise Vibration, he elevates the union of rock ‘n’ roll, funk, blues, and soul once again. Receptive to youthful inspiration, but enlightened by three decades of wisdom, it represents a powerful creative rebirth and a bold, bright, and brilliant body of work befitting of his legacy and boundless spirit.
