Robert Plant and Alison Krauss Announce Global Summer 2022 Tour
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will hit the road together next summer for an international tour in support of Raise the Roof, which arrives today.
The trek will kick off on June 1 in Canandaigua, N.Y., and conclude on July 20 in Berlin, Germany. These are the duo's first dates together since 2008, following the release of their initial collaboration, Raising Sand.
You can view a complete list of tour dates down below.
The announcement is part of a huge media blitz. Plant and Krauss will appear today on CBS Morning and The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where they're set to perform songs from the new album. They will host a global YouTube livestream, and join NPR Music for an album listening party. They'll also play more from Raise the Roof this weekend on CBS Saturday Morning.
Plant admits there was some apprehension about stepping back into the studio more than a decade after the monumental success of Raising Sand. “I wasn’t sure whether we could re-invoke what we had,” he told the New York Times. “But it was very short-lived, that question of whether or not it was real. It was like, I bow to her and she curtsies to me, and we see what we can do.”
