Karl Bartos is playing the Carling Academy, Birmingham on Sunday 13/11/2005. THIS IS THE ONLY UK DATE. Karl will be playing tracks from 'Communication' as well as old Kraftwerk numbers (excuse the pun!) Tickets can be purchased from www.wayahead.com. at 20.75 including booking fee. Should be a great show..............

Just noticed this extract from one of Karls previous shows at: http://www.darkstarorg.demon.co.uk/gig115.htm

There was just as much Kraftwerk material here as there was new Bartos-penned works. But again, sadly, nothing from his solid solo debut Esperanto. Opening: Numbers, Computer World, then the first new track The Camera. The pristine sounds expertly recreating the Kraftwerk compositions and blending perfectly into the Kraut Rockish The Camera - one of the highlights of his latest. In the bustling audience were several faces from the scene. Perhaps most notable was a duffle coat clad John Foxx who smiled broadly. Standing quietly at the back of the hall, his face wrinkling with delight, he looked like the graceful, wise man of British Electronic he is.

As this is the only UK show I wonder if our John will be attending? I remember seeing Gary Numan at Johns show in Birmingham a few years back...although he was spotted and had to move up to the balcany.......
