Just two days after being inducted to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, Kraftwerk has announced North American dates for the 3-D concert tour set to take place in the summer of 2022.
Members Ralf Hütter, Fritz Hilpert, Henning Schmitz, and Falk Grieffenhagen originally planned the 3-D Tour for summer 2020 in celebration of the band’s 50th anniversary, however, Kraftwerk eventually scrapped those dates due to the pandemic.
Following a stint in Europe next May, Kraftwerk will head to the U.S. on May 27th for a show at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO. From there, Kraftwerk will perform throughout the Midwest, including Cleveland, OH (5/29); Minneapolis, MN (6/1); Chicago, IL (6/2); and Detroit, MI (6/4); before heading north to Toronto (6/6) and Montreal (6/8) Canada. Making its way back to the U.S., the 3-D tour will stop in North Adams, MA (6/10) before hitting the Boch Center Wang Theatre in Boston, MA (6/11); Radio City Music Hall in New York, NY (6/17); The Met in Philadelphia, PA (6/18); and The Anthem in Washington, D.C. (6/19).
Kraftwerk will then head south to Orlando, FL (6/22), before working back up the East Coast through Nashville (6/24) and Memphis, Tennessee (6/25), and then out west. The last leg of the Kraftwerk tour will see the group perform in Austin (6/27) and Dallas, TX (6/28); Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO (6/30); San Diego, CA (7/3); Los Angeles, CA (7/5); San Francisco, CA (7/6); Portland, OR (7/8); and Seattle, WA (7/9); before returning to Canada for the tour closer at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia (7/10).
In recent years, starting with the 2012 retrospective of their catalog at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Kraftwerk has returned full circle to its 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 in Australia, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, and more.
