I think the only gig I can remember were the band<Ralf> had some interaction with the audience was the U.E.A. Norwich in 1992
A warm up gig for the Sellofield concert with U2 .As tickets were only available to Green Peace member’s tickets were hard to come by.

On being asked between songs for any spare tickets someone shouted I will see you outside the arena. Ralf’s reply was
“I go in through the the back entrance” to cheers from the audience.

Anyone else heard interaction at gigs

The 3 July 1981 Concert at Hammersmith Odeon was a bit strange.

It was an all seater venue and for a large proportion of the concert if anyone stood up a "heavy" bouncer would ensure that you sat down again.

During a pause in-between tracks Ralf said "Why don't you dance?". An audience member shouted out in reply "Because we'll get kicked out!".

However .. when Pocket Calculator was played loads of people rushed to the front and everyone who remained where they were stood up!

Those were very witty responses! I think Ralf Hütter and Kraftwerk are more humorous than most people would give them credit for. In my Radio-Activity concert at Los Angeles, this year, the only things I remember were a mention of the song "Autobahn" and the year 1974, and then Ralf's farewell to the audience much later, "Good night! Auf wiedersehen! See you tomorrow!"

I like this thread! Here's one from Leicester Polytechnic 18th June 1992 - another one of the two low key gigs preceding the  "Stop Sellafield" show:

 

Some of the audience members were repeatedly calling out song requests. In particular, one called for the Organisation track "Silver Forest"...

 

"You know all the songs", deadpanned Ralf.

What does he say in 3.22? He also mumbles something at 3.48... http://www.bigozine8.com/TRKS6/KWheute/KWheute206.mp3 

It's a soundcheck from Ediinburgh 1991, more info on http://bigozine2.com/roio/?p=507

edit: he speaks a lot after 3.22 trough the soundcheck, but what?

edit2:very funny XD 4.50

At 1:28:20 Ralf refers in Dutch to the first time "Trans Europe Express" has ever been played in Paradiso Amsterdam in 1976.

"..In 1976 hebben wij de volgende compositie voor de eerste keer hier in Paradiso gepresenteerd..". Translation: "..In 1976 we presented the following composition for the first time, here in Paradiso.."

There's also the infamous sound check warm up where The Model gets more than she bargains for, 1991 I believe.
