Lenny Kravitz has announced his only UK show of 2019. The iconic singer-songwriter will play at London’s O2 Arena on 11 June to mark the 30th anniversary of his debut album Let Love Rule, a much-acclaimed collection that spawned the singles ‘Let Love Rule’, ‘I Build This Garden for Us’, ‘Be’, ‘Mr. Cab Driver’ and ‘Does Anybody Out There Even Care?’
Support will come from British singer-songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae and from New York collective Brass Against, who perform fiery brass versions of songs by artists such as Rage Against The Machine and Tool. At the show, Kravitz will also showcase tracks from his most recent record, Raise Vibration, which was released in September.
“I’ve loved Lenny Kravitz since Let Love Rule,” says Rae. “It will be an honour to support him at the O2 – I can’t wait! We have met a few times and I am in awe of his whole vibe and massive musical legacy.”
Pre-sale tickets will go on sale on Wednesday, while a special pre-sale for Classic Rock readers will launch on Thursday. The general sale will begin on Friday, with all ticket sales starting at 9am.
Kravitz’s Raise Vibration tour also features a host of South American and European dates, which begin in Colombia on March 23. The tour concludes with the show at London’s O2. For a detailed list of dates and further information on the shows, please visit the artist’s official website.
Lenny Kravitz won the Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance four years in a row from 1999 to 2002, breaking the record for most wins in that category as well as setting the record for most consecutive wins in one category by a male. He has also had a successful acting career, featuring in The Hunger Games franchise. The star also performed in London twice during 2018, with a show at the SSE Arena in June and a performance at BBC Radio 2 Live in Hyde Park in September.
