Kravitz show canceled
American singer-songwriter Lenny Kravitz has canceled his March 24 concert in Manila, citing “contractual scheduling conflicts beyond my control.”
In a message posted on his official Facebook account on Wednesday, the rock musician apologized to his Filipino supporters: “I have been looking forward to coming and playing for my fans, and I’m deeply sorry that my concert had to be canceled.” Kravitz was scheduled to perform at the Globe Circuit Event Grounds in Makati City.
Manila was supposed to be one of the stops in his ongoing world tour “Strut,” which was launched in support of his 10th studio album of the same title.
