Kraftwerk to Perform Eight Classic Albums in London
The electronic music pioneers haven't played the city since 2004.
Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk will perform eight of their classic albums over eight nights in London early next year.
The shows will take place in February at the Tate Modern museum, Vintage Vinyl News reported. The group hasn't played the city since 2004.
The series of performances, entitled Kraftwerk - The Catalogue 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8, will be "a chronological exploration of the group's sonic and visual experiments and will present eight classic masterworks" from their repertoire, including Autobahn, according to the report. The band will use 3D visuals and effects, projections and animation during the performances.
The other albums Kraftwerk will perform are Radio-Activity (1975), Trans Europe Express (1977), The Man-Machine (1978), Computer World (1981), Techno Pop (1986), The Mix (1991) and Tour de France (2003).
In recent years, Kraftwerk have used visual arts at festivals and museums, including at the Venice Biennale in 2005. They also had a retrospective at the Museum of Modern Art in New York this year.
Tickets for the London performances will cost $96 (£60). They go on sale on Dec. 12. It is not possible to buy tickets for the whole series.
