Electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk announced a 12-date tour on Monday, including an Oct. 5 gig in Detroit at the Masonic Temple Theatre. The date is part of Kraftwerk's "3D Concert" tour, which features visuals enabled by 3D glasses provided for the audience to wear. Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday.
