I would have to call this a " not" to miss show , and I wouldn't wait any longer than Thursday to get tix.

from chartattack.com

Capitalizing on their recent return to the recorded medium, German electro pioneers Kraftwerk have just announced a Canadian show. The band will appear at Toronto’s new Ricoh Coliseum on April 23.

So far, the Toronto date is the only Canadian Kraftwerk show that’s been announced. Tickets for the gig will go on sale this Thursday, December 18 through Ticketmaster. Tix will go for $19.50, $35.50 and $47.50, depending on where you want to sit.

Earlier this year, Kraftwerk released Tour De France Soundtracks, their first album since 1986’s Electric Café. Although Kraftwerk have been touring throughout their 12 year recording hiatus, the album marks a return of the band as a creative force. The best part of the album is that it picks up right were the group left off — and it’s actually pretty good, which is more than most comeback bands can say for themselves.

Kraftwerk, headed by the duo of Florian Schneider and Ralf Hutter, released their first album, Kraftwerk 1, in 1971. Since then, they’ve gone on to influence just about everyone who fancies themselves an "electronic artist" with their Moog loving ways. If you’re not familiar with the Kraftwerk legacy, we suggest you pick up a copy of the fantastic The Man-Machine. Trust us

I can't say that they have ever been that important in my musical education although this might be interesting to see.

I was more of a Can fan and "switched on Bach". haha

Giorgio Moroder is my real 70's dance related music pioneer.

They just opened an urban apparel store named "Kraftwerk" by my apartment at Yonge and Alexander. I wonder how they feel about this.

I've been waiting for this for years!!

I'm pleasantly suprised that they're playing such a large venue..finally all these kiddie ravers have the chance to see what electronic music really is...actually EVERYONE from junglists to househeads should show some respect and check them out...I'll actually be quite pissed if there's small turnout

i really liked the oakenfold remix of that kraftwerk song in that swordfish movie... cause most of their stuff on it's own is just a tad too slow to dance to ;)

someone really knows their history of music.
whatever electronic music is fake. anyone can make a computer bleep and bloop all over the place. it takes actual talent to play the harp do cérebro do gato or menino do braço cão. besides, electronic music wasn't even good to dance to until about 2 years ago.

and Im ranking this as the second most intelligent post ever.

with that frame of mind I could easily say...anyone can pluck the strings of a harp, or anyone can blow air into a trumpet, its only air right.

And oh yes I forgot ALL electronic muisc is for dancing, and you have to be on drugs to enjoy it right?
