Kraftwerk to Play The Ryman July 24


Though they pretty much pioneered all of electronic music, influencing countless genres in the process, and provided the soundtrack to the dawn of the digital age throughout the ’70s, Germany’s enigmatic Kraftwerk are, still, not quite the ubiquitous household name you would expect (not that they’re by any means obscure, but, in a perfect world, they’d be right up there with The Beatles in musical regard). 50 years into their existence, the band are still going strong as one of the most immersive and compelling live acts around, notably finding a boost in prominence in recent years through the new wave of festival culture and mainstream interest in electronic acts. For around a decade, Kraftwerk have been bringing a special music meets performance art “3D” show around the world, and, for their 50th anniversary, the acclaimed band (and recent Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame nominees) are set to once again tour North America, returning to Nashville’s own Ryman Auditorium, where they last played in 2015, on July 24. That last Ryman stop was their first Nashville show ever, so, while we’re delighted to see them back again five years later, there’s no telling when, or if, they’ll be back again. So we encourage fans and newcomers alike, anyone with a passing interest in electric music, or even just general music history fans who want to be completist in catching all of the greats, to get tickets here while you can!
