Kraftwerk is one of the most influential bands in pop history. In a career spanning more than 35 years, the German electro pioneers have been endlessly saluted and mimicked by each new generation of innovators. In the late 1970s, the post-punk futurists professed their devotion. In the 1980s and ’90s, the leading lights of Chicago house, Detroit and Euro-techno paid homage. Kraftwerk is possibly the most sampled band on the planet, and their music continues to inspire.
Over the last decade, Ralf Hütter, Florian Schneider, Fritz Hilpert and Henning Schmitz have toured the world and now Kraftwerk is returning to the US to perform a short series of shows in Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Denver, and the 2008 Coachella festival. These are Kraftwerk’s first US shows since 2005 following the release of their first ever official live document, the 2 x CD and DVD sets Minimum-Maximum. Their unforgettable appearance at Coachella 2004, combining state-of-the-art interactive audio and lighting, still has their legions of fans buzzing four years on.
