American musician Lenny Kravitz will play Spark Arena on March 31, 2020 as part of his Here to Love world tour.

The concert will be the 'American Woman' singer's first performance in New Zealand. The show will include songs from his first album Let Love Rule through to his latest Raise Vibration.

Tickets will go on sale later this month, with a pre-sale on Monday, October 21 and a general sale opening on Thursday, October 24.

Music isn't Kravitz's only artistic output, he's also known for acting. He played Cinna in The Hunger Games and also appeared in critically-acclaimed films Precious and The Butler.

It's promising to be an interesting show, The Guardian said Kravitz's 2018 concert at O2 Arena was well put together and full of impact.

"For all the slightly tired rock-star posturing and outworn guitar solos, Kravitz knows how to catch a groove," reviewer Daniel Dylan Way wrote. 

"During his trademark cover of The Guess Who's 'American Woman', a trio of brass players emerge to stretch the song into an elongated, dub-tinged outro that teases in snippets of Bob Marley's 'Get Up, Stand Up'. 

"The introduction of the trumpet and two saxophone players is a turning point for the show, thanks to their potent energy."
