7) Lenny Kravitz at Theatre at Grand Prairie

Four-time GRAMMY® Award-winning singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Lenny Kravitz elevates the union of rock ‘n’ roll, funk, blues, and soul he patented in 1989 once again on his eleventh full-length album, Raise Vibration. Receptive to youthful inspiration, but enlightened by three decades of wisdom, it represents a powerful creative rebirth and a bold, bright, and brilliant body of work befitting of his legacy and boundless spirit. As he raises the bar for music once again, there’s still nobody like Kravitz. He’s on a vibration of his own.  You can feel the vibration of Lenny Kravitz this Saturday at Theatre at Grand Prairie!
