Kraftwerk tickets - Kraftwerk Tour

Kraftwerk 2014 Tour Schedule

Kraftwerk was a pioneer in the electronic dance music, and have since influenced almost every other synthesizer band that has graced the music scene. With such an impressive repertoire and a renowned reputation for their ingenuity and catchy synthpop beats, it's a rare treat to see Kraftwerk perform live in concert. So as Kraftwerk heads to Seattle on July 1st and then to Vancouver on July 3rd, make sure that you are in the audience to hear this legendary group put on an incredible concert!

Kraftwerk Background

In the late 1960s, Florian Schneider and Ralf Hutter met when they were students in Dusseldorf, Germany. Both were studying classical music at the Dusseldorf Conservatory, but decided to gravitate toward a more experimental and groundbreaking form of music dubbed "krautrock"—a style of German experimental music that was starting to make waves in the '60s.

As the core of Kratwerk, Schneider and Hutter worked with numerous other musicians in the early 1970s while they recorded several albums. Both members of the core duo played an array of instruments, although the main instruments were a flute for Schneider and the synthesizer keyboards for Hutter. Their first two albums, Kraftwerk (1970) and Kraftwerk 2 (1972), were purely instrumental, exploring the unique beats and rhythms they could produce with various instruments. Starting in 1973, Kraftwerk started to rely more heavily on synthesizers and drum machines, two elements that have become intrinsic to their classic sound. Younger generations gravitated toward Kraftwerk's music because of its robotic and futuristic sound, as well as its fun and catchy dance beats.

While Kraftwerk played countless shows in Germany and even in France, they didn't break out onto the international scene until their release of Autobahn in 1974. In the U.S., Autobahn peaked at number five on the Billboard top 200, making the exploratory electronic group one of the biggest music names in the world. From there on, they went on mega worldwide tours, kept experimenting with new music technologies, and continued to crank out hit tracks. Their pop-oriented songs have caused a worldwide sensation and have influenced virtually every synthesizer group that has followed in their wake. While the group took a short three-year break in the late seventies, they returned with just as much creativity and enthusiasm for their experimental sound than ever. And now, you have the chance to see this iconic electronic dance music group perform live at two great venues: the Paramount Theater in Seattle and the Queen Elizabeth Theater in Vancouver. Don't wait too long to buy tickets, though, as they are bound to sell out quickly! Head to StubHub today!


Biggest Hits

Over the course of their prolific career, Kraftwerk has released 24 singles and ten studio albums. Some of their most popular hit singles include "Autobahn", "The Model", "Musique Non Stop", "The Robots", "Expo 35", "Tour de France 2003", and "Pocket Calculator". They have achieved critical acclaim and commercial success around the world with their hit songs, making them a one-of-a-kind worldwide sensation. This July, Kraftwerk is coming back to the U.S., so take advantage of this opportunity and grab your tickets to see them perform live from StubHub!


Trivia

Some of Kraftwerk's most well known sound effects were derived from a speaking-aid for deaf-mute children and a popular toy called the Vortrax. The sound effects from these devices were recorded live and implemented into various Kraftwerk songs, such as "Uranium" and "Blue Monday".
