Fresh out of their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame last weekend (October 30), electronics pioneers Kraftwerk are announcing their 2022 “3-D” North American concert tour.

The tour brings together music, 3D visuals and artistic performances. In their live performances, Kraftwerk – Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert and Falk Grieffenhagen – “express their faith in the contributions of man and machine”, according to the tour announcement.

In recent years, starting with the 2012 retrospective of their catalog at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Kraftwerk has come full circle on its origins within the Düsseldorf art scene of the late 1960s. 3D at MoMA was followed by other presentations at Tate Modern Turbine Hall in London, Akasaka Blitz in Tokyo, Sydney Opera House, Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles, Louis Vuitton Foundation in Paris, at the Neue Nationalgalerie in Berlin and Guggenheim Museum Bilbao.

Kraftwerk was started in 1970 by Ralf Hütter and Florian Schneider as a multimedia project. They set up their Kling Klang Studio in Düsseldorf, Germany, where they designed and produced all of Kraftwerk’s albums.

By the mid-1970s, Kraftwerk had gained international recognition for its revolutionary electronic soundscapes and musical experiments with robotics and other technological innovations. Using innovative techniques, synthetic voices and computerized rhythms, their compositions have had major international influence in a wide range of musical genres: from electro to hip-hop, techno to synth-pop, and beyond. .

In 2014, Hütter and Schneider received the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. The group celebrated their 50th anniversary in 2020. That same year, Schneider passed away at the age of 73. In 2021, Kraftwerk was recognized for its groundbreaking work with its induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
