Einstürzende Neubauten, Berlin’s storied and essential leading edge of the international avant-garde music scene, will celebrate thirty years of live performance with a very select group of appearances in North America and Europe. In North America, four US cities and one Canadian city have been selected for the band’s first dates on these shores in over six years. In each, the band will present two events on two consecutive days. One will be a traditional, full-length concert by the entire group with a repertoire spanning the length of their career. The second, however, will present fans with a uniquely-expanded opportunity to connect with the band members and further facets of their work. Among the elements involved:
Q & A with Fans: regarding the band’s history, the various stages of creative development, work with the “supporters” of the neubauten.org project (phase 1-3), and about the future.
Workshops / Lectures: regarding the band’s connection with Berlin culture from the 1980s to today. Films: documenting the inner workings and public image of the band during the 30 years of their existence.
Solo Performances: presenting individual band members’ solo projects in the form of readings, musical performance and DJ sets
Photos: exhibiting fine photography related to the band
