Lenny Kravitz is coming to the Netherlands in October for a concert. The 47-year-old rocker will perform on October 17 at Ahoy in Rotterdam, according to concert organizer Mojo.

The concert will be part of a European tour promoting the latest album of American vocalist and guitarist, “Black and White Europe tour”, a production that contains several technical innovations.

During the shows he will play his biggest hits and songs from his new album Black and White America. Ticket sales for the concert will start June 9.

Premiere of the new album is planned for August this year. Earlier, Lenny Kravitz’s new single “Stand” will be released on June 6.

Leonard Albert “Lenny” Kravitz (born May 26, 1964) is an American singer-songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, record producer and arranger, whose “retro” style incorporates elements of rock, soul, funk, reggae, hard rock, psychedelic, folk and ballads.

In addition to singing lead and backing vocals, Kravitz often plays all the guitar, bass, drums, keyboards and percussion himself when recording. He is known for his elaborate stage performances and music videos.

Kravitz has had multiple number 1 hits on the US Top Singles Charts, though none by himself on the Hot 100, and many more worldwide.

He won the Grammy Award for “Best Male Rock Vocal Performance” four years in a row from 1999 to 2002, breaking the record for most wins in that category and most consecutive wins in one category. He has been nominated and won other awards, namely American Music Awards, MTV Video Music Awards, Radio Music Awards, BRIT Awards and Blockbuster Entertainment Awards.
