Kraftwerk played ‘Radio-Activity’ at MoMA (pics, setlist)

by Greg Cristman

Museum of Modern Art – 4/11/2012
Kraftwerk

There is absolutely no way any photo or video could ever come close to capturing the full effect of the modern day Kraftwerk live spectacle. The extremely intimate venue conspired with the crystal clear surround sound and breathtakingly stunning 3D effects to make this an absolute must see experience (unfortunately tickets happen to be hard to come by). This is live music/visuals taken to an unprecedented new level. The visual effects were so convincing and stunning they actually made you flinch as arms reached out, numbers pulsed, autobahn pavement unfolded, and ohm signs enveloped the line of musicians as it passed around them.

Those words come courtesy of photographer Greg Cristman who witnessed Kraftwerk play close to a two hour set at MoMA last night (4/12). As advertised, the setlist included all of the band’s 1975 LP Radio-Activity, but also much more. The show was part of the ongoing Volkswagen-sponsored eight night celebration of the band’s catalog which continues tonight with 1977’s Trans Europe Express.

Pictures and the setlist from the first night are HERE, More from night two, setlist included, below…
