Kraftwerk: review

Manchester Velodrome
02 July 2009


Kraftwerk opened the Manchester International Festival with a 'truly astonishing' show at the Velodrome, according to reviewer Meera Sengupta.

The German pioneers of electro pop played classic tracks such as Autobahn, The Model and Computerworld in front of a 3D graphics display.

And four members of the British Olympic cycling team even appeared cycling round the track during Kraftwerk's rendition of Tour de France.

Meera Sengupta, a Manchester DJ, reviewed the show for BBC Radio Manchester.

"There are not many concerts that I can say I'll take to my grave. But this will stay with me for the rest of my life."
