Hot on the heels of their induction into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame this past Saturday, Kraftwerk announced dates for their 2022 North American 3-D concert tour. The run was supposed to take place in 2020 but was canceled due to the pandemic. Kraftwerk will now present shows from late-May through July 2022.
The pioneering German electronic band — consisting of co-founder Ralf Hütter along with Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert and Falk Grieffenhagen — will present their music with 3-D visuals and performance art at each stop. Kraftwerk kicks off the trek on May 27 at The Pageant in St. Louis. Additional Midwest dates come in Cleveland on May 29, Minneapolis on June 1, Chicago on June 2 and Detroit on June 4.
Kraftwerk heads to Canada next for shows in Toronto on June 6 and Montreal on June 8. It’s then off to the Northeast for concerts in North Adams (Massachusetts) on June 10, Boston on June 11, New York City on June 17, Philadelphia on June 18 and Washington D.C. on June 19. The quartet concludes the month with performances in Orlando on June 22, Nashville on June 24, Memphis on June 25, Austin on June 27, Dallas on June 28 and at Red Rocks near Denver on June 30.
A swing through California follows and includes dates in San Diego on July 3, Los Angeles on July 5 and San Francisco on July 6. Kraftwerk ends the excursion in the Pacific Northwest with concerts in Portland on July 8, Seattle on July 9 and Vancouver on July 10.
Tickets for Kraftwerk’s 2022 tour of North America go on sale this Friday, November 5.
