German electronic music pioneers Kraftwerk are hitting the autobahn, again. The influential group announced a special 50th anniversary tour which includes a Detroit date on Monday, July 27, at the Masonic Temple.

Tickets go on sale to the public at 10 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 27.

The date is part of Kraftwerk's "3D Concert" tour, which includes video projections and 3D glasses for the audience to wear. The band last brought its 3D tour to Detroit in 2015, and returned to headline Movement Music Festival in 2016.

The group has a special place in Detroit's heart; it is widely cited as a huge influence on Detroit techno, thanks to heavy rotation by trendsetting radio DJ the Electrifying Mojo.
