Despite some critical knocks, Lenny Kravitz has managed to build-up a groundswell of support for his most recent album, "5," thanks to a near-constant touring schedule and a string of singles that have held strong on the modern rock charts.
Kravitz has even garnered a Grammy nomination in the category of "Best Rock Male Vocal Performance" for one of those singles, "Fly." Now the vintage-flavored rocker says he's looking forward to a mini-package tour he's assembling for this summer -- a music fest that would include performances from Everlast and the Black Crowes.

It's myself, the Black Crowes, Everlast and Cree Summer, a new artist [whose debut record] I produced. So, I put this tour together and we're gonna be out pretty much all summer with it."
"It just kind of came together
as the right thing," [/article]Kravitz continued. [article id="1439775"]"The Crowes rock live. They're a great live band. And I thought Everlast was interesting with what he's doing, so we contacted his people and he was down to do it."[28.8 RealAudio][/article]
