On the heels of a triumphant year that saw Robert Plant and Alison Krauss reunite for their first international tour in more than a decade, the duo has announced new tour dates for 2023.

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 U.S., including stops at Louisville’s Palace Theatre, Kansas City’s Starlight Theatre, Tucson’s Centennial Hall, and Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts.

The show stops at Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on July 1. Four days later, it visits the Budweiser Stage in Toronto.

Presales for this leg of the “Raising the Roof” tour will begin at 10 a.m. local time on Feb. 1. The general on-sale will get underway 48 hours later. For tickets or more information, go to https://www.plantkrauss.com/.

A press release noted, “Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ return to the road, which included sold-out shows at NYC’s Beacon Theatre and LA’s Greek Theatre as well as headline slots at festivals such as Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and Roskilde has been heralded as ‘a collaboration that should last for “Evermore,” ’ (Variety), and ‘a master class of a concert’ (Chicago Tribune).

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 recent tour was the band’s performance at Denver’s storied Red Rocks Amphitheatre on Sept. 1. Now, for the first time, ”Robert Plant & Alison Krauss: Live at Red Rocks” will be available to stream in its entirety on March 16 (8 p.m. ET), exclusively via Mandolin. 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 https://mandolin.com/.

“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 top spot on the Americana radio chart for 21 consecutive weeks. Last week, ”Raise the Roof” was named Best International Album at the UK Americana Awards ceremony in London. Since its release, the record has amassed critical acclaim from The New York Times, The New Yorker, Vanity Fair, Variety, Pitchfork and NPR.

Additionally, Plant & Krauss appeared on the “Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,” “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” “The Kelly Clarkson Show” and on CBS, PBS, MSNBC and BBC programming. The duo closed out the year with a special 90-minute episode of “CMT Crossroads.”
