Allen Event Center, a relatively small venue in the Dallas suburb of Allen, has struck another blow toward establishing itself as a big concert venue by booking Lenny Kravitz for a date on his upcoming North American tour.

Kravitz will play at the 8,100-seat venue on September 16, 2015, one of only 12 announced dates so far on the American leg of the tour. Kravitz will also play in Houston on September 17. He's currently touring in Europe through August 8.

The Kravitz date marks the third big concert the venue has booked in 2015. Bryan Adams came to town on April 12 and Counting Crows will be there on October 10.

Kravitz, who appeared in the area earlier in 2015 for a concert prior to the College Football Championship Game, is touring in support of his 2014 album, Strut.

Tickets for the date in Allen will go on sale on Saturday, July 11 at 10 am local time. Live Nation and Allen Event Center will also hold a presale starting on Thursday, July 9.
