Hard to choose which gig I enjoyed more, they were different but all still fantastic. The 1991 version of Kraftwerk with the stage crammed to the last inch with their banks of equipment or the version they do these days with just each member with just a keyboard and laptop each ( think actually they don’t even have the laptops now). On the 1991 tour when they did Pocket Calculator they had hand held miniature keyboards on the end of a cable and certain points in the song would lean down to the audience front row and invite people to have a stab at playing a few notes, ha! The 2004 gig at Brixton Academy still lives long in the memory though too. I am however disappointed I still haven’t got to any of the 3D gigs they tour now.

Agree with what you say though about there’s only Ralph left from the original line-up.

I read Wolfgang Flur’s book I Was A Robot some years back. An often revelatory story about his time in the group.

I keep meaning to read that book.
Pretty jealous that you got to see them back in the day. I would have loved to have seen them around Computer World era, although I was about 9 when that record came out.

Oh, for that time machine. I'd probably take in a couple of NO gigs. Beach Club, maybe? JD ones too. Derby Hall would be a riot! (see what I did there?).
