Iconic German electronic band Kraftwerk is kicking off a brief North American leg of their "3D Concert Tour" tonight, when they visit Edmonton, Alberta's North Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. After spending a couple days in Canada, the band will hop over to Portland, OR; Denver, CO; Austin, TX; Boston, MA; and points in between. The 12-date leg will end on October 9 in Kansas City, MO.
Considered pioneers in the electronic music scene, Kraftwerk was formed in 1970 by Florian Schneider in Düsseldorf, Germany, after already being present in the country's experimental music scene for some time. Their early work popularized electronic music and they are known for a minimalistic music and lyrics, their pioneering use of vocoders, and improvisation on stage.
The average listing price for Kraftwerk tickets at TicketNetwork.com is currently $174, and average prices per city range from $72 in Edmonton, Alberta, to $447 in Portland. "Get-in" prices currently run as low as $18 for tomorrow night's show in Calgary, Alberta. The next lowest "get-in" is $41 for the late-night September 25 show in Austin, TX.

We've posted about this before, but it keeps happening. An artist will be playing a show, minding their own business, when suddenly they meet up with the edge of the stage and take a tumble. In the end, it's usually no big deal. The artist will get up and continue on with the performance. But it is interesting to see, if only because it proves that they can be clumsy just like the rest of us (okay, maybe just me). Here are 10 more incidents.
