A little more than a week after announcing a North American tour, Lenny Kravitz has postponed his road plans due to unspecified "family matters." The trek was due to kick off Sept. 11 in Atlantic City, N.J., with Robert Randolph & the Family Band on hand to open.

"I was really looking forward to getting out there to meet and play for my fans," Kravitz says in a statement. "Unfortunately, things come up in life that you cannot control. I hope my fans will understand and I will definitely make it up to them with these shows next year."

The tour was to be Kravitz' first North American outing in more than two years, and had 18 dates on the books through an Oct. 16 show in Las Vegas.

Kravitz' latest Virgin album, "Baptism," debuted in June at No. 14 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 224,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
