Following an electrifying European stadium tour, multi-platinum recording artist Lenny Kravitz has announced dates for the Latin American leg of his Celebrate! world tour. Scheduled to kick off in Brazil at Porto Alegre March 15th, 2005, the tour will also hit São Paulo, Brasilia and Rio de Janeiro, with Kravitz performing high-octane versions of hit after hit from his decade-plus career.
Universally-renowned as music’s premiere rock musician, the Brazilian leg of Kravitz’s Celebrate! tour promises to be nothing short of spectacular. Said Kravitz, I’ve always wanted to tour Latin America. This is the first time I’ve had the opportunity to come and play in Argentina, Chile and Brazil. I’m really looking forward to playing these shows and connecting with my fans who have supported me throughout my career.”
Since its worldwide release in the spring of 2004, Lenny Kravitz’s 7th studio album “Baptism” has had incredible success throughout Latin America. The record was written, produced and arranged by Kravitz, who also performed all the instruments on the release, including bass, piano and drums, in addition to the guitar. The album features a string of chart-topping songs, including “Where Are We Runnin’,” and “Calling All Angels,” a recent top five single in Brazil. Kravitz recently performed the track solo at MTV’s 2004 Latin Music Video Awards, held earlier this year in Miami, Florida and it is also featured on the soundtrack of the top-rated Brazilian TV show Senhora do Destino.
