Rock messiah, Lenny Kravitz galvanizes aesthetics with extravagance, power and boundless creativity. It is with this explosive recipe that the Manhattan native has redrawn the contours of American-style sound in three decades!
His ardor, his charisma, his soaring flights of fancy: Lenny Kravitz fills all the boxes to sit in the very restricted circle of rock legends. With 40 million albums sold since the beginning of his career and collaborations with the greatest, including Madonna, Mick Jagger and Jay-Z, the multi-instrumentalist is a symbol of longevity. Behind his guitar, which he mothered and swayed, this stage genius fears nothing.
Echoing an America rocked by New York rock, Chicago blues and Detroit funk, Lenny Kravitz is a showman at heart. Able to draw his melodies in a torrid atmosphere, the native New Yorker is also a fervent defender of Human Rights. In 2009, he made a remarkable appearance in Paris alongside Keziah Jones, Olivia Ruiz and Ayo during the Peace One Day concert at the Grand Rex.
Discovering Lenny Kravitz on stage is therefore an experience in itself, like a sensational leap towards an unknown, but certainly crazy destination. Now in his fifties, the artist with dark glasses continues to surprise and challenge American rock: get ready for an extraordinary journey.
Lenny Kravitz, the day after the release of his debut album Let Love Rule, makes a name for himself in France on the Transmusicales scene. The success is almost immediate, and will be confirmed at the beginning of the 1990s, thanks to the two following discs: Mama Said and Are You Gonna Go My Way.
The American artist wins his second Grammy Award, for the release of his first and most successful Best-Of, with nearly eleven million copies sold worldwide. That year marked a turning point: he went from being a rising star to a lifelong master.
Thirty years after his debut, Lenny Kravitz releases Raise Vibration, his 11th album, punctuated by a world tour. Funk, melodious and committed, the record is enthusiastically received by critics and fans alike. Some will even say that it is the album of renewal, and Le Figaro will comment: "it testifies to a renewal of inspiration".
Seeing Lenny Kravitz in concert is an incredible experience. I will remember this concert for a long time. He literally set the stage on fire with overwhelming energy. Thirty years into his career, he is still as impressive as ever. He dares to step out of his comfort zone to come and dance with the audience. In short, a slap in the face!
Collaborating with Lenny Kravitz for the organization of his tours in France is an honor for us. Especially since we've been doing it for years, even though he was still unknown in France. Since then, this artist has made his mark on contemporary music, with original and very marked sonorities. Through his talent, he has succeeded in bringing a new energy to rock, between extravagance and subtlety. He is a legend!
Three decades after his first album, the American is still at the top of the bill. His latest album is one of his most inspired, and his concerts continue to thrill fans as they did on the first day.
Lenny Kravitz has lost none of his seductive power. While in Montreal, he quickly put the 6000 spectators in his pocket. True to himself, the 55-year-old singer sprinkled his performance with messages of openness and peace.
