    Robert Plant and Alison Krauss kicked off their Raise the Roof world tour on Thursday (June 1st) in Canandaigua, New York, where they performed tracks from their two collaborative albums and even a few Led Zeppelin classics. Watch videos from the concert and see the full setlist below.

    Beginning with “Rich Woman,” the Dorothy LaBostrie and McKinley Millet-penned track that opened the duo’s 2007 smash Raising Sand, Plant and Krauss went on to perform cuts like The Everly Brothers’ “The Price of Love” and Raise the Roof original “High and Lonesome.”

    Perhaps most exciting, however, was their duet of Led Zeppelin’s “Rock and Roll,” which Plant and Krauss had never before performed together. Sharing vocal duties, the pair countrified the song with a boisterous violin and shuffling percussion. Later, they brought out the Page and Plant tune “Please Read the Letter,” as well as Zeppelin’s “The Battle of Evermore” and “When the Levee Breaks.”


    After rocking and rolling in New York, Plant and Krauss will hit the likes of Chicago, Philadelphia, and Salt Lake City, with a few European dates in between. The world tour ends on September 4th in Austin, and tickets are on sale now via Ticketmaster.
