Radiohead recruits Kraftwerk for a new 2009 tour



What’s probably the most influential electronic music band in the world, Kraftwerk, will surprisingly tour with Radiohead, as gig openers, for their upcoming 2009 trek. Quite an end to German-English rivalry.

Although, Kraftwerk is on board only for a hanful of shows, Latin American fans will be delighted to see the two giants on tour, starting March 15-16, when they’ll kick it off in Mexico City, before calling it quits on April 25-26 in Wolfsburg, Germany.

Kraftwerk has gone through quite some line-up changes along the years, though, the most recent notable one being the recent departe of the icon co-founder of the group, Florian Schneider. This was predictable, since Florian didn’t go the band’s last year tour, being replaced by Stefan Pfaffe. Schneider, however, still has a few aces down his sleve with some new stuff in store for the future, “working on other projects; technical things,” as he very well put it.

Tour dates:

March 15-16: Mexico City (Foro Sol)
March 20: Rio de Janeiro (Praca da Apoteose)
March 22: Sao Paulo, Brazil (Chacara Do Jockey)
March 24: Buenos Aires, (Club Ciduad)
March 26-27: Santiago, Chile (San Carlos De Apoquindo)
April 25-26: Wolfsburg, Germany (Altes Heizkraftwerk)
