Robert Plant and Alison Krauss will reunite on tour in 2022, marking the first time the two entertainers have toured together in over a decade. Beginning June 1, 2022, they will embark on an 18-show run of bandshell venues, launching in Canandaigua, New York, and including stops at New York City’s Forest Hills Stadium, among other venues.

The tour, their first in 12 years, supports their new album Raise The Roof, which released Friday (Nov. 19) and is the follow-up to 2007’s Raising Sand, which earned the pair five Grammy honors, including album of the year and record of the year.
