German legends Kraftwerk are coming to Australia and New Zealand this year. 

The electronic music pioneers will perform in Wellington, Auckland, Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, and Perth in November and December (see full dates below).

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, July 19th at 10am local time. The Frontier Members pre-sale begins on Monday, July 17th at 11am local time.

Formed in 1970 by Ralf Huetter and Florian Schneider, Kraftwerk have become renowned for their live shows, showcasing a true “Gesamtkunstwerk” – a total work of art.

Utilising innovating techniques, synthetic voices, and computerised rhythms, Kraftwerk have been a major global influence across a variety of music genres throughout their career, from electronic to hip hop, techno to synth pop.

Kraftwerk have been putting on impressive concerts over the last decade, including acclaimed shows at Sydney Opera House, Los Angeles’ Walt Disney Concert Hall, Berlin’s Neue National Galerie, and Bilbao’s Guggenheim Museum.

In 2014, Huetter and his former partner were honoured with the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award. They followed that up seven years later with an induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
