Following tours of Japan and Europe, Lenny Kravitz will launch a North American summer tour July 12 in Virginia Beach, Va. The 33-city Lenny Live trek, which will feature support from Pink and Abandoned Pools, will last through a Sept. 2 stop in Phoenix. On sale information for the tour, sponsored jointly by MTV and VH1, has not been announced.

Kravitz will play a trio of shows in the U.S. before kicking off the European leg of the tour. He'll make previously announced April 26-27 appearances as part of the annual New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, and hit New York's 3,700-capacity Hammerstein Ballroom on May 3. The latter stop will be the most intimate venue in which Kravitz will perform throughout his entire itinerary.

Kravitz will be touring in support of his latest Virgin album, "Lenny." Released last November, the set debuted at No. 12 on The Billboard 200 and spawned the single "Dig In," which peaked at No. 7 on Billboard's Adult Top 40 chart, No. 11 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, and No. 13 on the Modern Rock Tracks tally. The song also earned Kravitz a record fourth-consecutive male rock vocal performance Grammy Award.

Pink kicks off her first major tour May 2 in Phoenix, in support her latest Arista album, "M!ssundaztood," which peaked at No. 7 on The Billboard 200 and produced the No. 4 Hot 100 hit "Get the Party Started."

Abandoned Pools' Extasy/Warner Bros. set "Humanistic" recently peaked at No. 18 on Billboard's Heatseekers chart, while the single "The Remedy" is climbing the Modern Rock Tracks chart, up 32-27 this week. The group begins a 30-date North American tour April 19 in Toronto.
