Kraftwerk Announce Career-Spanning Residency in Los Angeles

Kraftwerk have announced a career-spanning, nine-date residency at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Kicking off on May 21, the pioneering electronic group will perform a different album in full each night, with a final greatest hits set taking place on May 30. Find the band’s full schedule below.

The residency coincides with the 50th anniversary of Kraftwerk’s pivotal fourth album, Autobahn, which they will perform in full on the first night of their Walt Disney Concert Hall series. Subsequent shows will feature performances of Radio-Activity, Trans Europe Express, The Man-Machine, Computer World, Techno Pop, The Mix, and Tour de France Soundtracks.

Kraftwerk put on a similar string of concerts in 2014; the shows also took place at Walt Disney Concert Hall, and included full-album performances set to 3D multimedia visuals. In 2022, the group embarked on a North American tour following itsinduction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame the previous year. In 2020, founding member Florian Schneider died from cancer at age 73.
