Robert Plant and Alison Krauss
"Raise the Roof Tour" with special guest JD McPherson
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 announced their first tour in twelve years. Beginning on June 1, 2022, the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and 27x Grammy-winner will bring their brand-new music to an international run of bandshell shows, including Pine Knob Music Theatre on Monday, June 6, 2022 at 8 p.m. Pine Knob Music Theatre is presented by Proud Partners United Wholesale Mortgage, Trinity Health and Ally.
In the weeks leading up to Raise The Roof, the album has been celebrated with a New York Times Sunday Arts & Leisure profile, a multi-page spread in Vanity Fair, as well as features in Variety, Entertainment Weekly, People, Associated Press and far beyond. Says the New York Times, “Raise The Roof almost magically reclaims the spectral tone of Raising Sand, then finds ways to expand on it, delving further into both quiet subtleties and wailing intensity.”
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.
