Electro Pioneers K R A F T W E R K Celebrate Their 50th Anniversary in 2020 with North American 3-D Summer Concert Tour

After their worldwide hugely successful 3-D concert tours, the Electro pioneers Kraftwerk announce North American tour dates for summer 2020. Bringing together music,  3-D visuals and performance art,  KRAFTWERK  are a true „Gesamtkunstwerk„ a total work of art.

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‚ soundscapes 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 computerized 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. 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),  Neue  National Galerie (Berlin) and Guggenheim Museum (Bilbao).  In 2014 Ralf Hütter and his former partner were honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

The electro pioneers have influenced many over their 50-year career, including Diplo, Afrika Bambaataa, Cut Chemist and Pharrell.
