Kraftwerk announce third and final London date (2017)

Story by Jack Foley

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, June 23, due to overwhelming demand.

Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday, October 7.

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 toured the US and Europe this year, Kraftwerk will head to South America in November before bringing their immersive 3-D multi-media concert experience to the UK in June 2017.
