Lenny Kravitz kicked off his "Black and White America" tour in Boston last night and it was a knock out show ! It was a privilege to see him in this intimate venue. Lenny told us of his travels in the past several months, played amazing guitar, sang his rockin heart out and showed pure love to this crowd. The band was a powerhouse ensemble performing rock, funk, soul and blues, with even a little jazz, at times. He played favorites like "American Woman", "Fly Away" and "Are You Going My Way", while he blazed the set with tracks from his new album, the magnificent Black and White America. (Released Aug 2011). The light effects and stage production were so vibrant, strobe psychadelic and reflective of the music, that I have one word for this entire show: FIREWORKS.
