A brief mention of this show can be found here. From the initial post by show attendee, Roy Oldenkamp [sic]:
  • 1974 Kraftwerk Autobahn Tour Great Southern Music Hall... bunch o hippies in the crowd... they put the synths on automatic during KOMETMELODIE and left the stage for a half hour. Most of the aud left, but those that stayed got an extra dose of lovely.

    as I recall, no opening act. Just the three onstage, with synthizers and a simple green (I think) neon tube in front of each moog on the floor. Spectacular. Autobahn was mythic. I want to say late spring or early winter 1974.
