Lenny KravitzLenny Kravitz has cancelled his upcoming Australasian tour, including his appearance at Bluesfest, due to unforeseen scheduling issues.

In a statement, Kravitz apologised to fans, and said he had been personally looking forward to playing at Bluesfest and still hoped he would play the event someday.

‘Unfortunately, due to contractual scheduling conflicts beyond my control I will not be able to come to Bluesfest to perform this year. I have been looking forward to coming to play for my fans and I’m deeply sorry that my concert had to be cancelled.

‘My ability to come play for you all is a huge concern to me and while I am unable to confirm another time right now, I’m looking forward to rescheduling so I can perform for you in Byron Bay as soon as possible. Love and respect…Lenny,’ he wrote.

Bluesfest director Peter Noble said despite the short notice he would try to find someone to fill Kravitz’s shoes.

‘It is sad for all of us here at Bluesfest, when anyone cancels, as we know it must be for Lenny’s fans right now. Please be assured we are now attempting to find someone else to come and play,’ Mr Noble said.

But he said there was still enough top talent to keep most music fans entertained over Easter.

Although we are going to miss Lenny when we take off on Thursday April 2 I am sure it’s going to be one of our greatest Bluesfests ever.”

He added that refunds would be available for people who bought single-day tickets for April 2, the night Kravitz was scheduled to play.

People seeking a refund should call the Bluesfest office on 02 66858310 before Thursday March 19.
