They’re back! Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have begun their 2024 tour of North America. Reunited once more – and much sooner than the twelve years that passed between their first two tours – the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and the 27x GRAMMY-winner have released a recording of “When the Levee Breaks,” their first single since 2021’s Raise The Roof LP. The first of 28 concerts of the “Can’t Let Go” tour began June 2, with Plant, Krauss and their all-star band playing amphitheaters, pavilions, opera houses and other historic venues. Dozens of cities will have the opportunity to experience the live show hailed as “a master class of a concert” (Chicago Tribune). They will also join Willie Nelson & Family, Bob Dylan and Celisse for a stint of stops on the Outlaw Music Festival.

Dates feature support from JD McPherson, who also plays lead guitar for Plant and Krauss, alongside an ensemble of drummer Jay Bellerose, bassist Dennis Crouch, multi-talented string player Stuart Duncan, and Viktor Krauss on keys and guitar. Drawing from both of their monumentally acclaimed, T Bone Burnett-produced LPs – 2007’s GRAMMY-sweeping Raising Sand and 2021’s chart-topping Raise The Roof – Plant and Krauss are delivering a blend 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, as well as reimagined renditions of Led Zeppelin cuts like “The Battle of Evermore,” “Rock & Roll,” “When the Levee Breaks” and other surprises.
