The only thing better than Lenny Kravitz releasing a new album this week – “Black and White America” – is Lenny Kravitz releasing a new album this week AND playing a free show at New York’s Terminal 5 on August 31, 2011 to celebrate. The show was part of the Samsung Summer Krush concert series and it rocked! Lenny Kravitz looks and sounds amazing. He does not look like he’s aged a day since his career began in the late 80s and his voice sounds as great as ever. I’ve seen Lenny in concert a lot and I don’t think you can really leave one of his shows disappointed. His fans are great as they really seem to take the words “Let Love Rule” to heart and everyone is cool so it makes the concert-going experience even better. I ran into Grammy-nominated art director, my “Ultimate Prince” partner in crime and the man responsible for directing the exclusive videos that are posted on Lenny’s official site, Mathieu Bitton, at the concert and it looks like a lot of great footage will be gained on Lenny Kravitz’ upcoming European tour.
Lenny opened the show with my favorite track off “Black and White America,” the extremely funky “Come On Get It.” The hits kept on coming after that with “It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over” and “Mr. Cab Driver.” Before the end of the night, “American Woman,” “Fly Away” and “Are You Gonna Go My Way” were played and the audience lost their minds! No show would be complete without Lenny spreading the love during “Let Love Rule” as the audience participated in a chills inducing sing-a-long and Lenny Kravitz also walked into the crowd. That ruled!
