The main star of next year’s Colours of Ostrava, the country’s largest and most popular music festival, will be American singer Lenny Kravitz, the festival organizers revealed on Friday.
His performance in Dolní Vítkovice will feature songs from his new album Blue Electric Light, which is scheduled for release in March 2024. Other star guests include Sam Smith and rock legend Queens of the Stone Age.
The festival will take place from 17 to 20 July 2024.
Lenny Kravitz has been nominated for and won a long list of awards, most notably the Grammy for Male Rock Vocal Performance, which he won four times in a row between 1999 and 2002, setting a record that has never been broken before.
His very first funk-rock album, 1989’s Let Love Rule, on which he recorded most of the instruments himself, brought him considerable success, especially in Europe.
After the release of this debut, Lenny began receiving offers to open for such stars as Tom Petty, Bob Dylan and David Bowie.
Starting with his second, and immediately double-platinum album Mama Said, Lenny Kravitz embarked on a devilish career of stardom from which he has not emerged since.
Hit after hit, of which there were so many that when he capped off the ninth decade with the Greatest Hits compilation album, it sold over eleven million copies and the selection became one of the most successful albums of the era. In Ostrava, Lenny Kravitz will present his brand new album Blue Electric Light, which will be released in spring 2024.
Lenny Kravitz will perform on Friday 19 July 2024 at Česká spořitelna stage. Tickets are on sale here.
Lenny Kravitz has announced the dates of his upcoming “Here to Love” World Tour. The American artist will be performing at the O2 Arena on June 30th, 2020.
