As of tonight, the German group Kraftwerk will be playing the Tate Modern in London, their entire back catalogue in eight concerts over nine days.
The Tate Modern on the South Bank of the River Thames is the venue - beginning tonight - for a series of eight concerts by the influential German band Kraftwerk. If you want to go but haven't bought your ticket yet, it would be best if you checked out the somewhat unusual terms and conditions on the gallery's website.
There is now only one original member of the band left, Ralf Hütter, but regardless of this or of any line up changes, it remains to be seen if this band is the most influential in the history of contemporary music as has been mooted.
Of course it doesn't, the mere suggestion is ludicrous, but if you are not familiar with them, there is a fair selection of their work on YouTube. You'll probably find they sound more familiar than you thought. And you'll probably need to listen to most of their tracks more than once to fully appreciate them. Or not.
