“LLR 20 (09) Tour” to More Than 50 European Cities This Spring & Summer

 

 

Hollywood, California – March 27, 2009 - One of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class to ascertain a 20-year musical career that revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk.  To commemorate the 20th Anniversary of his incendiary, critically acclaimed 1989 debut, Let Love Rule, Kravitz and Virgin/EMI have collaborated to create an expanded 2CD and digital reissue to be released April 21 (April 20 internationally).  Let Love Rule (20th Anniversary Edition) features the newly remastered original album, plus 18 bonus tracks, including 13 previously unreleased demos, rare B-sides, and live recordings. 

 

20 years ago, Lenny Kravitz wrote, recorded and produced his iconic debut album, Let Love Rule, striking a chord around the world and propelling him to international stardom The title song’s signature line, “It’s time to take a stand, Brothers and Sisters join hands” is a theme Kravitz feels is still relevant to this day, and he is harnessing this message of hope, taking it on tour with him throughout Europe.

 

This spring and summer, Kravitz will tour to 55 European cities on his “LLR 20 (09) Tour,” starting on April 17 in Caen, France and ending July 19 in Stuttgart, Germany. Along the way, the tour will visit the UK, Italy, Spain, Austria, Switzerland and several other European countries. 

 

Lenny Kravitz is widely regarded as one of rock’s most respected singer-songwriters.  He’s also a multi-talented instrumentalist, producer and arranger, which has resonated throughout eight studio albums, culminating into a timeless catalog.

 

He has won four consecutive Grammy Awards, setting a new record for the most wins in the “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” category.  Kravitz’s appeal has also been recognized by his peers; his collaborative efforts are as varied as his own influences. Madonna, Slash, Aerosmith, Jay-Z, N.E.R.D., Mick Jagger, P. Diddy and Alicia Keys are just some of the legends who have sought to work with him.
