Robert Plant, Alison Krauss to play Ford Amphitheater in Vail

February 13, 2024, 10:50 am

Promoters for the Robert Plant and Alison Krauss national tour on Tuesday issued the following press release on their upcoming shows, including Sunday, Sept. 1 at the Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater in Vail:

Today, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss announce their return to North America. Reunited once more – and much sooner than the twelve years that passed between their previous two tours – the Rock & Roll Hall of Famer and 27x GRAMMY-winner will hit the road this spring and summer for nearly 30 headline dates and counting. Beginning June 2nd with a centennial celebration for the legendary Cain’s Ballroom, the Can’t Let Go Tour will see Plant, Krauss and their all-star band bring spellbinding vocal performances and uncanny arrangements to amphitheaters, pavilions, opera houses and other historic venues from coast to coast. With additional stops to still be revealed, dozens of cities will have the opportunity to experience the live show hailed as “a master class of a concert” (Chicago Tribune) and “a collaboration that should last for evermore” (Variety). 

Tickets for Robert Plant & Alison Krauss’ Can’t Let Go Tour are on-sale at 10am local time this Friday, February 16th, following a series of pre-sales beginning at 10am local time tomorrow, February 14th. Find more information at plantkrauss.com 

Dates will feature support from JD McPherson, who also plays lead guitar for Robert Plant and Alison Krauss, alongside an ace 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 will deliver 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, as well as reimagined renditions of Led Zeppelin cuts like “The Battle of Evermore,” “Rock & Roll,” “When The Levee Breaks” and other surprises in store. 

After closing the 14-year gap between two albums that each took the world by unexpected storm, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss’ incomparable kinship stands as a “once in a lifetime collaboration” (NPR), as they remain “masters at dusting off generations-old tracks and making them saunter to a fresh, personal rhythm” (Pitchfork) – and “one of the most critically adored odd couples of music” (USA Today). Described as “an alternative to nearly all of its pop contemporaries” (The New York Times), Raise The Roof debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200, spent 20 weeks at #1 on the Americana chart, earned unanimous praise and landed the two titans everywhere from The Late ShowThe Tonight Show and CMT Crossroads to CBS MorningsPBS NewsHour and NPR’s Tiny Desk. Having honed their live set across the illustrious stages of Red Rocks, Forest Hills Stadium, Bonnaroo, Glastonbury and beyond, Plant and Krauss head into 2024 at the top of their unmatched game.
