Robert Plant & Alison Krauss to Kickoff Tour at CMAC on June 1, 2022
Tickets on Sale Friday, December 3rd
Canandaigua, NY – Today, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss invite the world to Raise The Roof. The long-awaited successor to their monumental 2007 album, Raising Sand, is out now, and to celebrate the occasion the duo has announced their first tour in twelve years. The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and 27x Grammy-winner will bring their brand-new music to CMAC (Constellation Brands-Marvin Sands Performing Arts Center) on June 1, 2022. Tickets go on sale at 10 am Friday, December 3 at ticketmaster.com.
The release of Raise The Roof has been accompanied by a host of major appearances and performances from Plant and Krauss. Earlier today they gave their first US TV interview tied to the album on CBS Mornings. Tonight, they will perform on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and tomorrow on CBS Saturday Morning.
Recorded at Nashville’s Sound Emporium Studios, sessions for Raise The Roof began in late 2019 and wrapped just weeks before the world went into lockdown. Like Raising Sand, T Bone Burnett produced the collection, which delivers a cosmic collision of early blues, country deep cuts, revolutionary folk-rock and lost soul music written by legends and unsung heroes like Merle Haggard, Allen Toussaint, The Everly Brothers, Anne Briggs, Geeshie Wiley, Bert Jansch, Ola Belle Reed, Brenda Burns, and more.
