Who else is excited that Lenny Kravitz is opening?

I think thats what is gonna make the leg of the tour (I am attending Seattle) that is gonna make this show ROCK!

I got to meet and talk to Lenny at the Long Beach GP a few years ago, and he was very fun to chat with, not counting the fact they he puts on an amazing live performance as well. I probably watch his Rock in Rio DVD at least every couple of weeks on my surround setup.

Getting to see both LK and U2 on the same night, is nothing short of epic.

Who else is with me?

Well, he sure as shit beats The Fray.

I like a handful of songs by Lenny, so I'm looking forward to hearing those (I'm assuming he'll play most of his hits, because what else does he have going on musically these days? He seems to be more into acting these days.).

Also, he's rather nice to look at, so that won't suck.

You can't get a better opening act in my opinion. Would have rather had Lenny at my amsterdam 360 show then Snow Patrol, although they were good as well.

Is it out of line, to maybe hope that Bono/Edge comes out to play a song with Lenny, or vice versa?

I guess we will find out soon enough.

Can you imagine Edge and Lenny jamming together on a song?

I'm pretty excited about this (Seattle). Not the biggest fan, but more of my cuppa tea than the Peas I got in Vancouver.

I am excited for this - would like to see him.

He plays the guitar amazingly. OF COURSE I want to see him.

Really NOT looking forward to any of the other support bands. Liked Snow Patrol outside of opening for U2 though, so that was a treat in 2009

Crushed that Arcade Fire is only doing a one-off thing because they would be ideal. Lenny would be my 2nd choice I suppose. It will be fun to just jam out to lots of guitar and drums. That damn song of his in all those NBA Playoff commercials is stuck in my head so it will be funny to finally hear that live. COMEONANDGETIT!

I enjoyed the BEP last time around and I hope he can bring the same energy and excitement.

I saw LK on a dual bill with The Cult many years ago - fantastic show. I am really looking forward to seeing him again.

I wanted to seee Lenny in Denver...Even god tried to sabotage them by flipping one of the awnings over on top of the one that was set out to protect the baby grand the lead fray dude 'plays'... Every U2 show I go to has to have a uhm 'unique' opener I suppose! Everyone enjoy him!
