Kraftwerk Takes Their Robot Sounds To Disney Hall For 8-Show Residency
Kraftwerk will be playing an eight-show residency at the Walt Disney Hall come spring 2014, but tickets for the shows (which could very well sell out), will go on sale early December.
Not only will each of the eight shows explore their over 40-year album catalog in chronological order, but it will also be coupled with 3-D visualizations, according to the LA Phil website. That means fans will get to revisit their love affair for albums such as "Autobahn" and "Tour de France," and even possibly get to hear some "Trans-Europe Express" (a track that was sampled by Afrika Bambaataa in funky "Planet Rock").
The iconic German electronic group, which hasn't played in L.A. since 2005, will be taking their laser beam beeps and melodic synthpop sounds to the stage between March 18 to March 21, to launch the LA Phil's Minimalist Jukebox Festival. However, only one member of the original quartet which formed in 1970 will be performing, and that's Ralf Hütter, according to The Los Angeles Times. Florian Schneider left the group back in 2008.
