Kraftwerk Launching 5 Week World Tour

Legendary German electronic act Kraftwerk will begin a five-week world tour with a May 30-31 stand at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 Club. The quartet will also play New York, Detroit, Chicago and Los Angeles, before 11 European dates through July 4 at the Montreux Jazz Festival in Switzerland.

Kraftwerk broke a 17-year break between albums with the 2003 release of “Tour de France Soundtracks” (Astralwerks), which peaked at No. 3 on Billboard’s Top Electronic Albums chart. And while a series of vintage album reissues have been in the works for some time, a label spokesperson says there is no update on their status, or that of any other new releases, at present.
