Kraftwerk Plan 3D Summer Tour in Honor of 50th Anniversary
The new list of North American dates runs through June and July and include stops at ACL and Osheaga.
As German electronic pioneers Kraftwerk receive due praise in London this spring as a titular part of London’s Design Museum’s exhibition “Electronic: From Kraftwerk to The Chemical Brothers,” the group will be headed to the States and Canada for their own celebration. In honor of their fiftieth anniversary, the group—consisting of Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, and Falk Grieffenhagen—will be touring their 3D show this summer leading up to an August 1 appearance at Montreal’s Osheaga Fest.
Kicking off June 19 in Seattle, the tour will highlight the group’s long-developing fascination with the relationship between man and machine, while bridging the gap between their origins in Düsseldorf’s art scene in the late ’60s to the sound of today’s electronic, techno, synthpop, and hip-hop movements, all scenes Kraftwerk has had a hand in progressing.
Tickets for the tour go on sale this Thursday, February 27. See full dates below.
Edit 2/27: AEG Presents has shared a short promotional video for the tour, which features Pharrell, Diplo, Afrika Bambaataa, and Cut Chemist sharing what Kraftwerk means to them. Watch it below.
