Kraftwerk announce UK tour featuring Liverpool Philharmonic date



The German electronic pioneers announce a Merseyside date on their first UK tour in 13 years, GetintothisLorna Dougherty reports.

Exploring synthetic sounds since the 1970s, the seminal German band Kraftwerk have always had a sound that’s unique just to them.

Their innovative use of technology melded with melody, in a similar manner to The Beach Boys’ pioneering use of the Theremin in Good Vibrations, allowed them to sound ahead of the times, yet still familiar enough to be enjoyed by the mainstream.

In the 21st century Kraftwerk have continued to embrace and delve into contemporary technology, with a 13 date, 3-D tour hitting the UK and Ireland in the June of 2017. They play in the iconic Liverpool Philharmonic Hall, June 11, 2017 – perhaps a fitting location for an act embracing the modern day while retaining their classic influence.
