Kraftwerk will play an eight-night residency at the Tate Modern in London next February.

The iconic German electronic band will play a series of shows at the art gallery's Turbine Hall from February 6–14 in 2013. The gigs, which are called '1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8', will take on the same format as the run of dates they played at New York’s Museum Of Modern Art in April of this year, and the shows they have confirmed to take place in their hometown of Dusseldorf next January.

Each gig will see the band accompanied by 3D visuals as they play each of their studio albums live in full. The dates are as follows:

1 – 'Autobahn' (1974) (February 6)
2 – 'Radio-Activity' (1975) (7)
3 – 'Trans Europe Express' (1977) (8)
4 – 'The Man-Machine' (1978) (9)
5 – 'Computer World' (1981) (11)
6 – 'Techno Pop' (1986) (12)
7 – 'The Mix' (1991) (13)
8 – 'Tour De France' (2003) (14)

Speaking about the shows, Tate Modern director Chris Dercon said: "As a former power station, Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall is an ideal venue for Kraftwerk’s explorations of technology, energy and rhythm. Bringing together music, video and performance, these events will be true gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art."

Tickets go on sale on Wednesday 12 December at 7.30am GMT. For more information visit Tate.org.uk.

Kraftwerk last performed in the UK in 2009, at Bestival and the Manchester International Festival. At the latter they appeared at the Manchester Velodrome and whilst playing 'Tour de France' were accompanied by members of the GB cycling team, who cycled around the track along with the music.
