Robert Plant and Alison Krauss at Mohegan Sun

27 February 2008

UNCASVILLE, Connecticut -- (PRESS RELEASE) -- Robert Plant and Alison Krauss take their unlikely partnership on the road this spring, with the duo performing material from their surprise smash album, Raising Sand. The two will be performing together in Mohegan Sun Arena on Wednesday, June 4th at 7:00pm.

Tickets are $65.00 and $45.00 and are available starting Monday, March 3rd at 10:00am through Ticketmaster. Ticketmaster customers may log onto ticketmaster.com; call any Ticketmaster Charge By Phone number; or visit any Ticketmaster outlet. Tickets will also be available starting Tuesday, March 4th at the Mohegan Sun Box Office subject to availability.

The unlikely project came about when former Led Zeppelin front man Plant phoned contemporary bluegrass star Krauss about seven years ago to tell her he admired her work and wanted to work with her someday. The duo first sang together at The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's American Music Masters Tribute to Lead Belly, and eventually enlisted producer/musician T Bone Burnett to help them record together. The resulting CD, Raising Sand, debuted at #2 on The Billboard 200 album chart following its release last October, and was certified gold by the RIAA shortly after. The first single from the collection, "Gone, Gone, Gone (Done Moved On)," won a Grammy in the category Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals.
