Kraftwerk and Andy Warhol help Bilbao Guggenheim celebrate its birthday

BILBAO'S futuristic Guggenheim Museum is celebrating its 20th anniversary with a huge concert by German band Kraftwerk.

One of the best-known electro-pop groups of the last few decades, Kraftwerk will play for eight consecutive nights – from October 7 to 14 – performing their classic hits as well as tracks from their new album, The Catalogue – 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8.

Their 'visual experimentation', says the museum's management, will be complemented by spectacular 3D special effects throughout the whole of the atrium.

One of the world's most highly-acclaimed art museums – both for its collection of works and for its ultra-modern design – the Guggenheim in Bilbao was the brainchild of architect Frank Gehry and opened on October 19, 1997, meaning the 20th anniversary concert will in fact be a year early.

But a whole 12-month programme of activities means Kraftwerk's appearance is only the start – the complete series of events will come to a close on or around the museum's actual 20th birthday.

The Guggenheim is hoping to appeal to a whole generation – as well as the legendary German techno-pop band, its 2016 season is set to open with an exhibition by way-out 1960s' pop-art genius, Andy Warhol.

Titled Sombras ('shadows'), the late American painter's works will be on display in the Basque city's world-class gallery from Friday, February 26 until Sunday, October 2 inclusive.
