Lenny Kravitz announces huge 2019 London show

The gig will take place next June

Lenny Kravitz has announced details of a new show for 2019 at The O2 Arena in London.

The 54-year-old artist will play at the 20,000-capacity arena on June 11, 2019 with tickets going on sale for the gig on Friday (November 30). You can buy tickets for the event here when they go on sale.

Kravitz will be touring in support of his well-received 2018 album ‘Raise Vibration’, and he’ll be supported on the tour by Corinne Bailey Rae and Brass Against.

Kravitz recently revealed that he was often turned away by record companies during the early part of his career because his music “wasn’t black enough”.

He told Variety: “I just knew that I was singing and performing my truth. This was a time right after everybody in the music industry was telling me that I couldn’t do this sort of thing. I would take my music around to the labels, and I would get the whole ‘It’s not black enough’ [response].

“So people were not into the music that I was making or didn’t know how to sell it or how to market it. I was offered deals if I would simply change my music. I never took the deal. I wanted to do my thing.”
