Kraftwerk have announced a North American tour to celebrate their 50th anniversary. The electro pioneers will bring their beloved 3D visuals, music, and performance art on the road to play a career-spanning set this summer.
When it comes to having a noteworthy career, Kraftwerk have too many accomplishments to list. Since forming in 1970, the group of friends merged machines with man to help popularize electronic music as we know it, released 10 studio albums, charted on mainstream radio worldwide, and redefined our expectations for technology within music. They’ve since been nominated for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame not once, but twice, among countless other awards.
Here’s hoping this anniversary tour is similar to the magic caught on 3-D The Catalogue, their Grammy-winning live album. Come to think of it, it’s hard to imagine Kraftwerk playing music that isn’t profoundly cool. After all, they’re the band that performed live from the International Space Station with a little help from a German astronaut.
Kraftwerk’s upcoming tour begins in Seattle, Washington on June 19th and wraps up in Boston, Massachusetts on July 31st. Along the way, they’ll play in major cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Austin, New Orleans, Miami, Atlanta, New York City, Chicago, Nashville, Toronto, and more.
