Veteran rock and roll hero Lenny Kravitz is currently dancing around Europe on the overseas leg of his Rise Vibration 2018 Tour, named after his upcoming studio album which is due out on Sept. 7. On Monday, Kravitz announced that the American leg of the tour will begin on Sept. 21 in Atlanta, and runs over two weeks before coming to an end in Los Angeles on Oct. 7.
Kravitz, now a young 54-years-old, recently welcomed fellow rock guitarist Gary Clark Jr. as the support act for a handful of dates on his European tour, which is scheduled to continue tonight (Monday) in Luxembourg. The upcoming run of North American shows will be Kravitz’s first U.S. concerts since last summer when he joined Guns N’ Roses for select dates on their Not In This Lifetime Tour. Notable stops on the fall tour include shows at New York City’s United Palace Theatre and Broomfield, Colorado’s 1st Bank Center. Kravitz didn’t reveal who would be joining him as support on the tour, but tickets for select shows on the fall run will be going on sale starting this Friday, July 27, and can be purchased by clicking here.
Kravitz has shared the first two songs from Rise Vibration with “It’s Enough!” and “Low,” with the music video for the latter seen in full above. The 12-song album is the singer’s first studio effort since 2014’s Strut, and features Kravitz performing all the instrumentation himself, with contributions from his longtime band guitarist Craig Ross. According to an interview with Kravitz shared last March, there will be two new albums coming in the near future, but no specifics have been provided as of yet.
““One that I’m finishing now will come out this year and I’m feeling really good about it," he told Rolling Stone. "It’s nice having two things that are completely different and that will be ready to go. There won’t be a break between the next two [albums] and after that, I’ll probably be on the road for the next five years straight. This is going to be a run.”
