Lenny Kravitz

MGM Grand Garden Arena, Feb. 19

What began as a typical rock ‘n’ roll show became a magical evening with the appearance of Muhammad Ali, who was in town to celebrate his 70th birthday. “Next to my daughter being born, that was the most incredible moment of my life,” proclaimed Kravitz shortly after welcoming Ali to the stage and serenading him with “Happy Birthday.” Ali, who was accompanied by music legend Quincy Jones, sat onstage as Kravitz paid his respects and dedicated “Black and White America” to the boxing champion.

As if that wasn’t special enough, Kravitz’s high school buddy, Slash, joined him for a wild version of “Always on the Run” and Aerosmith guitarist Joe Perry sat in on “Are You Gonna Go My Way.” In true Kravitz fashion, the 47-year-old singer/songwriter rocked through his catalog of hits, including “American Woman,” “Where Are We Running” and “Fly Away” before closing out the show with a 20-minute rendition of “Let Love Rule.” ★★★★☆
