Not seen Kraftwerk since the Computer World tour of 1982

Tickets sold out very quick but we managed to get in at Bristol on an absolutely glorious day. Plenty of drink before hand, a necessity as we were going dressed up in traditional red shirt and ties.

Kraftwerk did not disappoint, never sure how much they actually play live but that’s not the point. It’s the total visual and sound experience of one of musics great pioneers that counts.
