3D Kraftwerk At Last: German electronic innovators Kraftwerk bring their 3-D summer concert to the Shrine on Tuesday, part of their 2022 North American tour.
According to the press release, “The show will not only build on their concert tours worldwide 3-D of the last ten years, but also mark their long-awaited return after 2020 plans had to be cancelled. Bringing together music, 3-D visuals, and performance art, Kraftwerk are a true Gesamtkunstwerk: a total work of art. If Kraftwerk’s history of boundary-pushing music and performance are any indication, this won’t be a show to miss.”
2021 saw Kraftwerk inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, a deserved honor for a band that helped change the shape of modern popular music over five decades.
“In their live performances, Kraftwerk—Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert, and Falk Grieffenhagen—make vivid their belief in the contributions of both man and machine,” reads the press release. “In recent years, starting with the 2012 retrospective of their catalogue at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Kraftwerk have returned full circle to their origins within the Düsseldorf art scene of the late 1960s. The 3-D concert series at MoMA was followed by further presentations at Tate Modern Turbine Hall in London, Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo, Sydney Opera House, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin, and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao. In 2014, Ralf Hütter and his former partner were honored with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.”
It’ll be great to finally see this show in L.A,
3D Kraftwerk At Last: The event takes place at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5 at the Shrine Auditorium.
