Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk are making the trip from Germany stateside this year, and they will be making a stop in Phoenix.
Today, Kraftwerk announced a concert at Orpheum Theatre, scheduled for September 15.
The tour is part of a nine-city run in the U.S. that will feature 3-D visuals in the background — something that Jose Duran, writing for our sister paper Miami New Times, called "the star of the show."
We looked, and we couldn't even find the last time Kraftwerk played in Phoenix. This show promises to be one for the ages. Tickets go on sale on Thursday, April 28, at 10 a.m.
