Really? Wow.  That seems to be a "thing" now, classic bands performing their old albums in their entirety.  It does seem to stir up the interest.

I would go see the "Radio Activity" album performed live.  I almost picked Trans-Europe Express, but that would only be if they played at least one RadioActivity song as an encore.

Ahah, The 'FoxyBassist' is the mid eighties FoxyBassist for that little known 'Progabilly' band The Cramps, her name is 'Fur'
 
 
Grrr!

Shocked Wait, what?! Lucky Brits, I thought it was implied that they were going to do world tours, but now that I think about it, boy that'd be a lot of work and time. LOL But wow, this is a pretty substantial event - once in a lifetime kind of thing. If I could go, definitely Trans-European or Autobahn- my two favourite Kraftwerk records. Heck, I'd try to go to most of them, if I could.

Hmm...that one seems to be regarded as one of their best, by some at least. It is for instance Iggy Pop's favourite Kraftwerk album. So why is it so lowly rated here? Must be an album that splits opinions...
 
 
Anyway, Man-Machine for me, followed by Trans-Europe Express (the only two of theirs I've heard).

Iggy's album "The Idiot" has some sonic similarities to  Radio Activity.  Real cold and lonely sounding.  That's what I like most about it.  It feels like a photo that's just a little out of focus.

I think Computer World and Man Machine would have awesome shows, so I would go to either of those.  I voted CW.

Radio Activity...probably the band's most influential (but today most underappreciated) album, and I'd love to hear a 21st century interpretation. But I really wish they'd acknowledge their first three albums...

Yeah, I live in NYC and it was nearly impossible to get in---was a bit of an insider thing---hope these shows are more open to the masses.

Trans Europe Express, with the track "The Man Machine" played as an encore! :-)
