In sad but ultimately unsurprising news, German electronic forefathers Kraftwerk have canceled their July 3-D show at the Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and, indeed, their entire North American tour.

The band posted a suitably robotic all-caps broadcast on their Facebook page earlier today:

DUE TO THE ONGOING COVID-19 PANDEMIC, THE NORTH AMERICAN TOUR HAS BEEN CANCELLED. TICKETS PURCHASED WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE REFUNDED FROM THE TICKETING COMPANY IN APPROXIMATELY 30 DAYS. FOR PURCHASES MADE IN PERSON AT A BOX OFFICE, PLEASE CONTACT THE VENUE DIRECTLY. WE HOPE TO CONTINUE OUR WORLD TOUR WHEN CONDITIONS ALLOW IN 2021/22

The Dr. Phillips Center is giving ticketholders the option of either a full refund, putting the dollar amount towards a future concert at the Dr. Phil, or converting the money spent into a donation to the Center. Visit this page for more details.

Kraftwerk, like all of us, has had an exceptionally bad year in 2020. Besides this tour cancellation, co-founding member Florian Schneider passed away at the age of 73 last month.
