(BOSTON, Mass.) – Legendary rocker and four time Grammy Award-winner Lenny Kravitz performs at the Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre on Friday, January 27, 2012. This show kicks off his first American tour in five years and is in conjunction with his ninth studio album, Black and White America, released on August 30, 2011. Raphael Saadiq is slated to warm up the crowd for Kravitz at the Wang Theatre. Tickets go on sale Friday, December 30, at 10 a.m. through Citi Performing Arts Center Wang Theatre; phone charge at 866.348.9738 and the Citi Performing Arts Center Box Office.
Kraviz’s nearly 20-city tour follows on the heels of the first leg of Kravitz’s world tour, which has been playing to sold out stadiums and arenas across South America and Europe throughout the fall of 2011. Upon wrapping the first leg of his world tour, Kravitz returned to the U.S. this December and completed a series of appearances in support of his new album on national television shows, including The Ellen Degeneres Show, The X Factor, Piers Morgan Tonight, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and an outdoor concert on Jimmy Kimmel Live!.
Kravitz also just recently released the music video for his latest single “Push,” a reflective and inspirational song that will be officially released to radio on January 23, 2012.
Following his U.S. dates, Kravitz takes his band overseas to Australia and Japan for the third leg of his world tour. He will return to the U.S. and Europe for additional concert dates later this year. Kravitz is also set to appear as Cinna in the highly anticipated motion picture The Hunger Games, which opens on March 23, 2012.
Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of 1960s and ‘70s soul, rock and funk. Kravitz is a four time Grammy Award-winner and has sold over 35 million albums worldwide.
Kravitz released his ninth studio album, Black and White America, last fall to critical acclaim. Marking his first release of new material in three years, Black and White America is a rich rock and funk-infused collection filled with Kravitz’s signature guitar riffs, compelling melodies and the anthemic lyricism that has been his trademark over the course of his 20-year career.
