Lenny Kravitz's current fan base is far different from those who followed him when he broke onto the music scene in the late '80s. He traded in the soulful, socially conscious songs of his early days for radio-friendly stadium anthems that catapulted him to stardom. After releasing his funk-fueled ninth studio album, Black and White America, toward the end of 2011, Kravitz has wisely decided to scale back on playing arena shows, and this time through Minneapolis he's in a far more intimate spot at the State. Whether he adjusts his arena-rock-laden set list to suit his elegant surroundings remains to be seen.
