Robert Plant and Alison Krauss perform at San Francisco’s Hardly Strictly Bluegrass in October 2008. The pair will tour for the first time in more than a decade next year.
Robert Plant and Alison Krauss released their second collaborative album, Raise The Roof, on Friday, and announced an accompanying tour.
The duo’s first tour dates in 12 years comprise a two-week early June U.S. trek and a second leg in Europe the following month.
Plant and Krauss kick off their 2022 touring on June 1 at Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands PAC (CMAC) in Canandaigua, N.Y., the venue in upstate New York’s Finger Lakes region booked by Brooklyn Made.
Other noteworthy U.S. stops include Queens’ Forest Hills Stadium (June 4), Chicago’s Jay Pritzker Pavilion (June 7) and the D.C.-area Merriweather Post Pavilion (June 11).
Plant and Krauss then head overseas, beginning their European tour in London on June 26 and subsequently hitting Norway, Sweden, Italy, Germany and Poland.
Raise The Roof follows Plant and Krauss’ acclaimed 2007 album Raising Sand, which won five Grammys, including Album and Record of the Year.
The duo’s 2008 tour in support of that record grossed $15.1 million, according to Pollstar Boxoffice data, and was highlighted by two-night June stands at New York’s Hulu Theater at Madison Square Garden and Los Angeles’ Greek Theater, which grossed $777,910 and $770,935, respectively. Other stops included Colorado’s Red Rocks ($543,904) and Merriweather Post Pavilion ($519,650).
In the intervening decade, the former Led Zeppelin frontman has remained a draw in his own right; in 2018, he grossed $5.1 million with his band The Sensational Space Shifters from 18 reported dates. Krauss, meanwhile, is also a touring force, including a co-headlining 2018 outing with Willie Nelson.
Tickets for Plant and Krauss’ U.S. dates go onsale to the general public on Dec. 3 at 10 a.m. local time. Find their itinerary below.
