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!
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!
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".

legendary artists of the electronic dance movement perform right in front of your eyes because Kraftwerk is heading to the
