This Is How German Electronic Icons Kraftwerk Are Celebrating Their 50-Year Anniversary

Today (Feb. 24) Kraftwerk is announcing a celebration of their 50 year anniversary with a summer tour across North America.

In 1970, Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider changed the direction of modern music with the creation of their game-changing electronic project Kraftwerk. Focused on robotics, technology and the ideas, images and sounds of the future, the German act is widely credited as creating the soundtrack for the digital age and influencing the sound of electronic music across all genres. 

On Monday (Feb. 24), Kraftwerk announced a celebration of their half-century of existence with a summer tour across North America. These performances will be an extension of the group’s renowned 3-D performances and the first time in four years that Kraftwerk has performed this 3-D show in the States. Tickets for the tour go on sale to the public on Thursday at 10 a.m. local time. 


The 27-date tour includes stops at Denver’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre, New York’s Radio City Music Hall and Montreal’s Osheaga music festival. See the comlete tour schedule and hear the group’s 1977 classic “Trans Europe Express” below.
