Lenny Kravitz has confirmed more than 20 international tour dates for the spring and summer, set to begin April 9 in Hiroshima, Japan. In May, the artist will hit Germany's Rock Am Ring and Rock Im Park festivals, as well as Holland's annual Pinkpop Festival. So far, his only U.S. dates are previously announced appearances April 26-27 as part of New Orleans' annual Jazz & Heritage Festival. A full North American tour is expected later this summer.

This is Kravitz's first extended tour in support of last year's "Lenny" (Virgin), which debuted at No. 12 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 567,000 copies in the U.S. to date, according to SoundScan. The album's first single, "Dig In," won a Grammy for best male rock vocal performance last week, marking the fourth year in a row Kravitz has taken home that honor. New single "Stillness of My Heart" is at U.S. radio now.

Meanwhile, the online music site Acid Planet is hosting a contest to remix Kravitz's "Believe in Me." The winner will receive an all-expenses paid trip to the Winter Music Conference in Miami later this month, an autographed guitar, and the opportunity to attend one of Kravitz's rehearsals. Entries must be received by next Thursday (March 14).
