Electronic-music pioneers and German multimedia-project Kraftwerk brought its 3-D concert experience Saturday night to the Mophie Stage at the Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Donning 3-D glasses, the crowd was taken on a spectacular and perfectly synchronized audiovisual trip that commenced with “The Robots” and continued late into the evening.

Ralf Hutter and Florian Schneider formed Kraftwerk in Dusseldorf, Germany, in 1970 and led the group until Schneider’s exit in 2008. Kraftwerk is currently comprised of Hutter, Fritz Hilpert, Henning Schmitz and Falk Grieffenhagen.
