Kraftwerk Announce Two New Dates Due To Phenomenal Demand

K R A F T W E R K

3-D

UK DATES JUNE 2017

EXTRA NEW DATES ADDED DUE TO PHENOMENAL DEMAND

 

Bringing together music and performance art, Kraftwerk 3-D concerts are a true “Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art.”

 

After instantly selling out their UK tour within a matter of minutes, Electro pioneers Kraftwerk have confirmed two additional dates due to overwhelming demand. The new dates will take place at Oxford New Theatre on Tuesday 6th June and Brighton Centre on Wednesday 7th June with tickets going on sale 12pm Friday 9th December.

 

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, South America and Europe this year Kraftwerk will bring their immersive 3-D multimedia concert experience to the UK in June 2017.
