2/5: Very disappointing Kraftwerk show, particularly with the stunning Paradiso shows in January in the back of my mind.
4½/5: Kraftwerk playing Trans-Europe Express. An impressive experience at Paradiso, quadraphonic sound, beautiful animations. Really happy I got to see this.
4½/5: Kraftwerk playing Autobahn. An impressive experience at Paradiso, quadraphonic sound, beautiful animations. Really happy I got to see this.
