NEW YORK, NY Wednesday Feb.23.2005 /netmusiccountdown.com/ -- Lenny Kravitz has announced the North American leg of his "Electric Church: One Night Only!" tour, which kicks off April 5 in Dallas and ends May 22 in Los Angeles. The theater tour in support of Kravitz's latest album, "Baptism," stops in 27 cities in the US and Canada.

Kravitz hopes to give fans a raw and intimate show. He said in a statement, "I haven't been able to play for my fans in the US since 2002, so I'm really looking forward to these shows." He added, "When I was planning my American tour, I decided that I wanted to get back to my roots, strip down the production and do something different. I haven't played theaters in years, and don't know when I'll be able to do it again, so this tour is going to be a great way to get out there and really connect with my fans."

Rolling Stone reports that singer Nikka Costa will open for Kravitz on the "Electric Church: One Night Only" tour. Tickets for most shows are on sale now at Ticketmaster. Others go on sale in the coming weeks.
