Man met machine met music met visual magic on Tuesday night when electronic visionaries Kraftwerk — now, amazingly, in their sixth decade — brought their summer tour to L.A.’s Shrine Auditorium.
The quartet (Ralf Hütter, Henning Schmitz, Fritz Hilpert and Falk Grieffenhagen) gave the audience — 3-D glasses on — two solid hours of music, including some variations on their well-known songs. The cross-generational audience ate it up.
