Eight More Nights Of Kraftwerk

Kraftwerk is returning to the stage after its April eight-night residency in New York City and summer festival appearances with another string of eight shows showcasing eight of its albums. This time the experimental electronic group will be in its hometown of Dusseldorf, Germany.

The shows are scheduled Jan. 11-13 and Jan. 16-20 at Kunstsammlung Nordrhein Westfalen. The Dusseldorf residency will be similar to the NYC shows in that each night will feature a live performance of one of Kraftwerk’s albums, in order of their release, beginning with 1974’s Autobahn and ending with 2003’s Tour de France.
