ROBERT PLANT & ALISON KRAUSS ANNOUNCE FIRST TOUR DATES IN TWELVE YEARS WITH STOP AT DTE ENERGY MUSIC THEATRE ON JUNE 6, 2022

19 Nov / 2021
Tickets Go On Sale Friday, December 3 at 10 A.M.

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 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 DTE Energy Music Theatre on Monday, June 6, 2022 at 8 p.m. 

Tickets (starting at $39.50 on the lawn) go on sale Friday, December 3 at 10 a.m. at 313Presents.com, LiveNation.com, the XFINITY Box Office at Little Caesars Arena and 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. In the meantime this afternoon, fans can see the two icons play a few of the new songs at 12pm CST / 1pm EST on a global livestream presented in partnership with YouTube (watch), in addition to a virtual conversation with critic Ann Powers at 1pm CST / 2pm EST, during NPR Music’s Listening Party event (rsvp). 

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. 

Praise For Raise The Roof

“Once again an alternative to nearly all of its pop contemporaries”

The New York Times

 

“With their combined talents and diverse tastes, the cliché about the odd coupling of bluegrass princess Krauss and rock god Plant doesn't apply…[Raise The Roof] is a testimony to their mutual respect for a wide spectrum of music”

Vanity Fair

 

“The album sounds warm, mystical and at times slightly foreboding, like an old friend you’re glad to see again who’s still a little mysterious”

Variety

 

“Just give Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’s new album every eligible Grammy...It’s like our ears are being hugged with very pleasant sound”

Vulture

 

“More than a decade later, Plant and Krauss are still proof that sometimes the best things come from unlikely collaborators”

Entertainment Weekly

 

“One of the most critically adored odd couples of music returns with another solid T Bone Burnett-produced amalgamation of folk, blues and country”

USA Today

 

“A sublime re-imagining of roots music traditions, from unsung English folk singers to modern torchbearers and lost blues gems”

The Guardian

 

“As Krauss and Plant draw on their disparate backgrounds in bluegrass and arena rock, what emerges is a musical marvel”

Associated Press
