Robert Plant and Alison Krauss have announced the next leg of their North American Raising The Roof tour, in support of 2021's Raise The Roof album.

The pair, who played 40 shows across nine countries between June and September last year, will pick up again at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium in Louisiana on April 25, and climax on July 5 at the Toronto Budweiser Stage, Ontario.

“We had a really great time last time, and I have no doubt we would have fun again," Krauss told Classic Rock last year, referring to dates supporting the pair's 2007 album Raising Sand. "It was a really great, spontaneous live show. We had incredible musicians and it had its own life.” 

Late last year, former Led Zeppelin man Plant also played a series of shows with Saving Grace, the band he fronts with Suzi Dian. Speaking to the BBC's Zoe Ball in November, Plant was asked about the likelihood of Saving Grace - who play covers of songs by the likes the Bob Dylan, Low, Planxty, Moby Grape, Low, Derek Trucks, Donovan, Los Lobos, and Richard and Linda Thompson – recording an album. 

“Saving Grace is a bunch of friends back from on the Welsh borders, Worcestershire," said Plant, "and we do shows, very discreet, undercover shows. It’s a beautiful sound, a magnificent sound and it’s delicately tiptoeing its way to one day being yet another thing that we mustn’t know or talk about… so yes."
