Lenny Kravitz to headline F1 Rocks™ in Melbourne 25 Jan 2012

Lenny Kravitz The Cranberries Wolfmother F1 Rocks™ in Melbourne

Music lovers are in for a treat at the season-opening Australian Grand Prix after organisers announced Lenny Kravitz is to headline two F1 Rocks™ in Melbourne concerts. They will be held at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl on Saturday March 17 and Sunday March 18 during the race weekend.

In his first Australian tour in 18 years, Kravitz will be supported by Irish band The Cranberries and Australian group Wolfmother. Multi-award winning American singer-songwriter Kravitz has sold more than 35 million albums worldwide and has written many hit songs including ‘Are You Gonna Go My Way’, ‘Fly Away’ and ‘It Ain’t Over Till It’s Over’.

Irish band The Cranberries, fronted by singer Dolores O’Riordan, are considered one of the most successful rock acts of the nineties, after selling over 15 million albums in the United States alone, whilst critically acclaimed Sydney-based indie-rockers Wolfmother burst onto the international scene in 2005 with their self-titled debut album.

”2012 is going to the biggest year yet for F1 Rocks™ and F1 Rocks™ The Afterparty and what better way to start than by joining Formula 1™ at the season opening race,” said Robert Montague, F1 Rocks™ CEO. “F1 Rocks™ in Melbourne will be the first of at least 8 events for 2012. We look forward to delivering great entertainment to fans in Australia on what is sure to be a great weekend of Formula 1™ entertainment.”

Andrew Westacott, CEO Australian Grand Prix Corporation, added: “We welcome F1 Rocks™ in Melbourne and look forward to an exciting weekend of action on and off the track, as we showcase Melbourne to the world.”

The 2012 Formula 1 Australian Grand Prix will take place at Melbourne’s Albert Park from March 15-18.
