News: Lenny Kravitz Confirms Aussie Headline Dates
(AUS) Amassing a huge response from media and fans alike following the announcement that US rock legend, Lenny Kravitz, will appear on the 2015 Bluesfest lineup, Chugg Entertainment has confirmed that the unrivalled rock hero himself will also be appearing at two headline shows in both Sydney & Melbourne. Joined by New Orleans hero, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, the shows will take place at Melbourne’s Rod Laver Arena on Monday 6 April and Qantas Credit Union Arena in Sydney on Wednesday 8 April.
Lenny Kravitz returns to Australia off the back of this latest studio offering, Strut; a culmination of rock and funk thrown into a blender. It’s raw, it’s got soul and it’s a real rock & roll record. The album’s twelve tracks – including such titles as “New York City”,” I Never Want to Let You Down” and “She’s a Beast” – hit hard rhythmically and explore desire in all its forms, from the most physical to the most idealized. These songs wear their heart on their sleeve, and that’s the way Kravitz intended it. He’s had massive hits over the years and sold nearly forty million albums.
His talents as a writer, producer and multi-intstrumentalist have resonated now through 10 studio albums and into a timeless catalogue. He has been nominated for eight and won four consecutive GRAMMY Awards in the “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” category, setting a record for the most successive wins ever in GRAMMY history.
With a slew of accolades and awards under his belt, having sold nearly 40 million albums, it’s fair to say Lenny Kravitz is a bonafide legend and this, a show not to be missed. With his friend and colleague, Trombone Shorty, warming the stage; this stands as just another reason to be there.
