Robert Plant, Alison Krauss Add More Shows to First U.S. Tour in 12 Years
UPDATE (4/11): Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have added a second North American leg to their 2022 world tour. The new dates will launch Aug. 15 at the Rady Shell in Jacobs Park in San Diego, California, and wrap Sept. 4 at the Moody Amphitheater in Austin, Texas. The trek will also include stops at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles and the famed Red Rocks Amphitheater outside Denver (a full itinerary is below with new dates in bold). Tickets for the new dates will go on sale this Friday, April 15, though a pre-sale will begin tomorrow, April 12, at 10 a.m. ET. Full information is available on the tour’s website.
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will return to the road together for the first time in 12 years next June.
The duo will kick off a 10-date U.S. tour June 1, 2022 at CMAC in Canandaigua, New York, and the trek will wrap June 16 at the Cadence Bank Amphitheatre at Chastain Park in Atlanta. Plant and Krauss will then head to the U.K. and Europe for a string of dates at the end of June and into July.
Tickets for the U.S. shows will go on sale Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. local time (save for the final show in Atlanta, which go on sale at 9 a.m. ET). A series of presales will begin, however, on Nov. 29. Full information is available on Plant and Krauss’ website.
The tour announcement coincides with the release of Plant and Krauss’ new album, Raise the Roof, out Friday, Nov. 19. The album arrives 13 years after their surprise 2007 hit, Raising Sand, which went on to win five Grammys, including Album of the Year. Raise the Roof was produced by T-Bone Burnett (who also worked on Raising Sand), and it primarily finds Plant and Krauss covering songs by artists like Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, the Everly Brothers and Bert Jansch, though it does feature one original, “High and Lonesome.”
