UK DATES JUNE 2017
THIRD AND FINAL LONDON DATE ADDED DUE TO HIGH DEMAND
Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true “Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art.”
Following the announcement of their UK tour in June 2017 which sold out instantly, Electro pioneers Kraftwerk have confirmed a third and final show at London Royal Albert Hall on Friday 23rd June due to overwhelming demand.
The multi-media project Kraftwerk was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider. They set up their electronic Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they conceived and produced all Kraftwerk albums. By the mid 1970’s Kraftwerk had achieved international recognition for their revolutionary electronic sound scapes’ and their musical experimentation with robotics and other technical innovations. With their visions of the future, Kraftwerk created the soundtrack for the digital age of the 21st century.
Their compositions, using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerised rhythms, have had a major international influence across an entire range of music genres: from Electro to Hip Hop, from Techno to SynthPop. In their live performances, Kraftwerk – Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, Falk Grieffenhagen – illustrate their belief in the respective contributions of both man and machine.
Having received numerous of accolades over the years, Ralf Hütter and his former partner were honoured with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2014. Starting with the retrospective of their Catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in New York in 2012, in recent years Kraftwerk have returned full circle back to their origins within the Düsseldorf art scene of the late Sixties. The 3-D concert series at MoMA was followed by further presentations at Tate Modern Turbine Hall (London), Akasaka Blitz (Tokyo) Opera House (Sydney), Walt Disney Concert Hall (Los Angeles), Fondation Louis Vuitton (Paris) and Neue National Galerie (Berlin).
Having toured the US and Europe this year Kraftwerk will head to South America in November before bringing their immersive 3-D multimedia concert experience to the UK in June 2017.
