Robert & Alison

One of my favorite albums of 2007 is the basis of a highly anticipated tour this summer. Last weekend Robert Plant and Alison Krauss kicked off their highly anticipated tour in Louisville to rave reviews.

Although some Zeppelin fans will probably blame this tour for delaying a dream Zep reunion tour, the Plant-Krauss collaboration is so good that it would be a crying shame not to hear it live. One would guess that a few of acoustic Zep tunes might find their way into the set, and Plant did not disappoint, bringing out Black Country Woman, The Battle of Evermore and an acoustic version of Black Dog. Other setlist reports include Hey Hey What Can I Do and the blues classic When The Levee Breaks, redone famously by Zeppelin in 1971. This bodes well for the tour, and I'll report later this summer when they hit the Chicago area.

I'll be on the lookout for some live recordings to share.
