Lenny Kravitz @ Arena Birmingham 20 June, 2018

The venue has been made into a more intimate affair for tonight’s performance by moving the stage far forward which allows Lenny Kravitz to maximise arena sound and stage size whilst maintaining the closeness to the audience; it is this combination that pays off particularly at the end of the show.
