Ischgl rocked with Lenny Kravitz for their season finale.

With the ’Top of the Mountain Closing Concert’ in Ischgl, Lenny Kravitz concluded a snowy skiing season at 2,320 m above sea level on 30 April 2019. 18,000 winter sports fans got to see the superstar with his band before a spectacular mountain backdrop in the ski area and an unforgettable air-show.

Optimal piste conditions, an aerial stunt show of the highest order and an animated Lenny Kravitz – at the Ischgl season finale on 30 April, nothing was left to be desired for the 18,000 attending fans and winter sports enthusiasts.

At 13:00, a beaming Lenny Kravitz took to the stage and immediately set an exuberant mood at 2,320 m altitude at the ’Top of the Mountain Closing Concert’ on the legendary Idalp-stage with his strong voice power and a sensational, two hours open-air performance.

The hits performed by Lenny Kravitz and his seven-member band included classics such as ’Are You Gonna Go My Way’, ’It Ain’t Over Til It’s Over’ and ’Fly Away’. But the superstar also played tracks from his latest and eleventh album ’Raise Vibration’.

After the concert, the Red Bull Skydive Team amazed the attending winter sports enthusiasts with their stunt show of wingsuit-formations after a helicopter jump-off and two Eurofighters from the Austrian Armed Forces did a flyover for a resounding season finale.

“With this spectacular finale we can look back at a successful and extraordinarily snowy winter season with over 2 million visitors. We are proud of having thrilled our guests from the first day to the last with optimum skiing conditions and look forward to next winter”, says Andreas Steibl, managing director of the Tourism Association Paznaun – Ischgl. The skiing season in Ischgl ended on 1 May 2019.
