Kraftwerk brought their 3-D tour to Radio City Music Hall (pics, setlist, video)
German electronic music icons Kraftwerk are celebrating their 50th anniversary -- a couple years late due to the pandemic -- with a updated revival of their 3-D tour that has founding member Ralf Hütter, along with Fritz Hilpert, Henning Schmitz, and Falk Grieffenhagen, running through their krautrock classics with eye-popping visuals. The tour hit NYC at Radio City Music Hall on Friday night (6/17).
You might wonder how exciting a show could be be with four musicians who stay mostly motionless behind keyboard stands, but the 3-D visuals -- everyone was given white polarized glasses on the way in -- accompanied by the still futuristic sounds of "Autobahn," "Computer World," "The Model," "Computer Love," "Trans Europe Express," "Pocket Calculator" and more, made for a spectacular audiovisual evening. Like they've done before, there were robot versions of Kraftwerk for "The Robots," which closed out the main set, and the show ended with a medley of "Non Stop," "Boing Boom Tschak," and "Music Non Stop."
