JUST ADDED: Quadruple Grammy Winner LENNY KRAVITZ To Make Wolf Trap Debut September 1

Tickets on pre-sale to members beginning today, and to the general public on July 10

Vienna, Va. (July 2, 2015) - Wolf Trap announces the addition of Lenny Kravitz to the Summer 2015 season.  The Grammy-winning chart-topper will make his Wolf Trap debut September 1. Tickets go on sale to Wolf Trap members (donors) beginning today, and are on sale to the general public on July 10. Visit WolfTrap.org for more information.

Beginning in 1989 with his first album, Kravitz has made an indelible mark on pop culture with hits including “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” “American Woman,” “Again” and “Fly Away.” An international style icon and trendsetter, he has sold more than 40 million albums, won four consecutive Grammys for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance, and earned praise for his edgy music videos and elaborate stage performances. 

Kravitz is currently on a sold-out European tour running through July. The announcement of new U.S. tour dates (see www.lennykravitz.com/tour for full routing) follows the recently released video for his latest single, “The Pleasure and the Pain” via RollingStone.com. His tenth studio album, Strut, was released in September 2014 and looks back on the 1970’s metropolis of funky after-hours grooves and soulful hooks. Named one of Rolling Stone’s Top Albums of 2014, the album includes such titles as “New York City,” “I Never Want to Let You Down” and “She’s a Beast.” 

With the addition of Kravitz, Wolf Trap’s Summer 2015 season at the Filene Center features 73 acts and 40 Wolf Trap debuts, including ‘80s icons Culture Club (August 10), Grammy-winning country stars Little Big Town (August 15), acclaimed Cuban cultural export Orquesta Buena Vista Social Club (August 29), and multiplatinum pop star Kelly Clarkson with Pentatonix (September 12-13). 

Wolf Trap’s Summer 2015 season has been met with unprecedented positive response, with 15 performances already sold out, and many more in “Limited Availability” status. Patrons are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance for best availability.
