Good news for kraut rock fans! Legendary German experimentalists Amon Düül II have just announced two rare UK shows for March 2002. They will play Manchester’s Blues Kitchen on March 16 and London’s Jazz Cafe on March 17. These will be the band’s first UK appearances since they performed at London’s Village Underground in June 2015.
We must note that in the current line-up of the kraut rock masters you can find many of the original band members: founder John Weinzierl (guitar, synths), guitarist Chris Karrer and vocalist Renate Kroetenschwanz, as well as Danny Fichelscher who replaced original Amon Düül II drummer Peter Leopald in 1972, percussionist Jan Kahlert and keyboard player Ulli Linzen.
