Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will extend their live musical reunion with a 2023 “Raising The Roof” tour leg, hitting 24 North American cities and kicking off April 25 in Shreveport, Louisiana.
This latest run will bring the music of 2021’s T Bone Burnett-produced, Grammy-nominated Raise the Roof and 2007’s Grammy-sweeping Raising Sand to audiences across the US, including stops at Louisville’s Palace Theatre, Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre, Tucson’s Centennial Hall, and Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. A full list of confirmed dates is below.
Ticket presales for the “Raising the Roof” tour are underway, with the general onsale beginning Feb. 3 at 10 a.m. local time. For tickets and more information, please visit the tour website.
The 2023 “Raising the Roof” tour follows on the heels of its 2022 success that saw former Led Zeppelin frontman Plant and bluegrass queen Krauss traverse North America and Europe, and selling out shows at Beacon Theatre in New York City and the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. They also performed at festivals including Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and Roskilde.
Backed by an all-star band of guitarist JD McPherson, drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, string player Stuart Duncan, and Viktor Krauss on keyboards and guitar, setlists have included favorites from both Raising Sand and Raise the Roof, as well as reimagined arrangements of Led Zeppelin classics.
A highlight of their most recent tour was the band’s performance at Denver’s storied Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sept.1. “Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Live at Red Rocks” becomes available for the first time to stream via Mandolin n its entirety on March 16 at 8 p.m. GMT for viewers in the UK/Europe and 8 p.m. for U.S. viewers. Tickets for the stream, which will have a viewing window of 48 hours from its premiere, will be available for purchase starting Feb. 14. For more information, go to Mandolin’s website.
Raise the Roof is currently nominated for three Grammy Awards and was the No, 1 most-played album at Americana radio in 2022, having occupied the No. 1 spot on the Americana radio chart for 21 consecutive weeks.
