Two legends on the same stage
The unlikely pairing between former Led Zeppelin vocalist Robert Plant and bluegrass legend Alison Krauss began in 2007 when they recorded the album Raising Sand. Since then, the critically acclaimed duo has toured the world and now released a new album, Raise the Roof.
“These are songs that have gone into our hearts way back in time, but got lost in the twists and curves of the passing years. You hear them and you go ‘Man, listen to that song, we got to sing that song!’ It’s a vacation, really—the perfect place to go that you least expected to find.”Robert Plant
The material on the album encompasses compositions by writers as diverse as Merle Haggard (“Going Where the Lonely Go”) and blues great Geeshie Wiley (“Last Kind Words Blues”). And the album even includes a Plant /T. Bone Burnett original, “High and Lonesome.”
In addition to the core band of ace musicians assembled by Burnett, including drummer Jay Bellerose and guitarist Marc Ribot on all tracks, there are appearances from such guests as David Hidalgo from Los Lobos, jazz wizard Bill Frisell and Buddy Miller.
How to get tickets
Tickets to the show go on sale Feb. 3, so get ready because these will very likely sell out!
Go to the Orion Amphitheater website and pre-order your tickets now. Prices range from $40 apiece to $200, but let’s be real here, by the time the week is over you’ll have to pay a lot more through ticket brokers. So I would recommend getting in the virtual line now!
