If it's Sunday, it must be Techno Pop

Kraftwerk: checkin' out MoMA beforehand.
New York's Museum of Modern Art (that's MoMA to the locals) have announced a special Kraftwerk performance/installation over eight days in April. The group will be giving a special live 3-D performance of their eight albums from Autobahn to Tour de France Soundtracks, with a different album being featured every night (starting Tuesday 9th). Tickets are $25 per night, plus the trip to NY, eight days stay etc.. Not cheap at the end of the day but may well be worth it to witness this unique show.
Dates as follows:
Tuesday, April 10, 8:30 p.m.
1 – Autobahn (1974)
Wednesday, April 11, 8:30 p.m.
2 – Radio-Activity (1975)
Thursday, April 12, 8:30 p.m.
3 – Trans Europe Express (1977)
Friday, April 13, 10:00 p.m.
4 – The Man-Machine (1978)
Saturday April 14, 8:30 p.m.
5 – Computer World (1981)
Sunday, April 15, 8:30 p.m.
6 – Techno Pop (1986)
Monday, April 16, 8:30 p.m.
7 – The Mix (1991)
Tuesday, April 17, 10:00 p.m.
8 – Tour de France (2003)

Even more tantalisingly the 'Werk will also perform "..additional compositions from their catalog, all adapted specifically for this exhibition...". Does this mean we will get to hear some of the fab early stuff like Tanzmusik in a new upgraded format, I wonder?
