Robot pop is coming to Vegas.
Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk have announced that they will be performing at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on June 28.
The show will feature 3-D visuals and will be a full-on multimedia experience, with surround-sound speakers and 3-D glasses provided to concertgoers upon entering the venue.
Founded in 1970, the German collective is one of the cornerstone acts of electronic-based music, having set the table for the DJ-producers who now dominate Las Vegas nightclubs more than four decades ago.
In a recent review of Kraftwerk’s current tour, New York Times critic Jon Pareles described the set-up of the show: “As the band played its songs — or generated them, since it was impossible to tell how much was live — larger-than-life three-dimensional projections towered over the stage and moved into the audience.”
Tickets for Kraftwerk’s Las Vegas show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
