Lenny Kravitz Performs at UEFA Champions League Pregame Show

Must read


Lenny Kravitz brought a hefty dose of rock ‘n’ roll to London’s Wembley Stadium prior to the kickoff at the 2024 UEFA Champions League final.

Ahead of the match between Borussia Dortmund and Real Madrid on Saturday (June 1), the 60-year-old performed shortened versions of some of his biggest songs. The rocker’s high energy six-minute set opened with “Fly Again” and closed with “Are you Gonna Go My Way.”

The kickoff show was presented by Pepsi.

The Champions League soccer contest, the most prestigious club match on the planet, pitches German heavyweights Dortmund against Spanish colossus Real Madrid. Approximately 90,000 fans were expected to fill the stadium, with a global audience of 100 million watching at home, according to tournament reps.

Kravitz has been a steady presence at awards ceremonies this year. In a short timeframe, he was immortalized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, received the music icon award at the 2024 People’s Choice Awards, the CFDA’s fashion icon award, and scored a nomination for the Rock And Roll Hall of Fame.

The legendary artist is currently promoting his 12th studio album, Blue Electric Light, which arrived on May 24 through Roxie Records/BMG. The set was written and recorded by Kravitz in his Bahamas studio.

Following his Champions League final appearance, Kravitz will embark on a summer European arena and festival tour, beginning June 23 at Sporthalle in Hamburg, Germany. He’ll also get the chance to play some new tunes for U.S. audiences at the Blue Electric Light Las Vegas residency at Dolby Live at Park MGM, set for Oct. 18-19, 23, 25 and 26.
