Renowned rocker Lenny Kravitz is headed to Tahoe. On Tuesday, March 14, Harrah’s and Harveys Lake Tahoe announced that the four-time Grammy Award winner would headline the 2017 Lake Tahoe Summer Concert Series on Friday, July 14, at 8 p.m.

“Regarded as one of the preeminent rock musicians of our time, Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of ‘60s and ‘70s soul, rock and funk,” states the artist’s Facebook biography.

Kravitz, whose list of hits includes “American Woman” and “Fly Away,” released his latest album, “Strut,” in September 2014.

“The album is a real rock & roll record that hits hard rhythmically and looks back on the 1970’s metropolis of funky after-hours grooves and soulful hooks,” continues the bio.

The singer has put his acting chops on display in “The Hunger Games” franchise, “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” and currently appears on the Fox show “Star.”

Tickets for the South Shore gig begin at $54.59, plus tax and fees, and are available online through Ticketmaster. Presale begins on Wednesday, March 22, and tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, March 24.

Kravitz is the eighth artist added to the 2017 Lake Tahoe Summer Concert Series lineup, which also includes Paul Simon, Rebelution, Sammy Hagar, Train, Third Eye Blind, Jack Johnson and Slightly Stoopid.

All performances take place at Harveys Outdoor Arena in Stateline.
