Stars of the electronic scene to bring 80s vibe to Stadtwerke turbine hall
Together with Kraftwerk’s Wolfgang Flür, Claudia, Susanne and Ralf of Propaganda (and Paul and Andy of OMD!) will be the stars of a very special electro night at the Turbinenhalle of Düsseldorf’s Stadtwerke on Wednesday May 11 as part of the Eurovision Song Contest 2011 festivities.
‘Back in the 80s, bands like Kraftwerk, the Krupps, and Propaganda planted the roots of electronic music in Düsseldorf, and the musical style has grown from here, with branches reaching far beyond the German borders. The British band Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), for example, was heavily influenced by Kraftwerk. Düsseldorf’s municipal utility company (Stadtwerke) will host an event dedicated to the music of the 80s on 11 May at 7 p.m., not only to give ‘Lena fever’ a boost, but also to show that the old 80s heroes continue to thrill fans of all ages.’
‘In the Stadtwerke’s turbine hall in Flingern, at the very roots of the Düsseldorf energy company, former Kraftwerk member Wolfgang Flür will read from his book ‘I was a Robot’, with musical accompaniment from Thilo Schölpen, who will interpret some of the most famous Kraftwerk songs on the piano. Next, Claudia Brücken, singer of the band Propaganda, and Paul Humphreys, OMD keyboardist, will take the stage to present hits from both bands’ repertoires with their electronic quartet ‘Onetwo’. Special guests Susanne Freytag and Ralf Dörper from Propaganda will also make an appearance, performing chart successes, ‘Dr. Mabuse’ and ‘P-Machinery’, and Andy McCluskey from OMD will also join on stage for a couple of numbers!’
To round of events a DJ from Düsseldorf’s current electronic scene will generate some party sounds in the turbine hall. Düsseldorf’s municipal utilities will raffle off 75 x 2 Tickets for May 11. Just send an email to email@example.com before April 21. More info at Düsseldorf’s site, auf Deutsch!
