Daft Punk Tour in the Works

http://assets1.pitchforkmedia.com/images/original/142609.x-news-daftpunk-live-sm.jpg

Holy scintillating space pyramids, Batman! A pair of costumed crime-fighters may soon be headed to a city near you, and, well, no dig on the dark knight, but these dudes will get the job done in well under two and a half hours. The crime they fight? That of immobile feet and crossed arms. Their weapons? Irresistible house grooves, lights galore, and a freaking pyramid. The name they go by? Daft Punk.

As noted in a recent Billboard.com report, France's favorite android sons are gearing up for a tour "in the near future," according to a Creative Artists Agency representative. We don't know quite when or where these visitations will occur, so keep your eyes peeled for the Daft signal. Or, better yet, just check the next news story on the subject.

While you wait, bide the time with repeat viewings of Daft Punk's Electroma, available now on DVD via Vice.

Finally, according to the aforementioned Billboard.com report, the horizon also holds tours from the likes of Depeche Mode, Green Day, Usher, Weezer, AC/DC, the Killers, and, shit yes, Journey.

they were on the poster and they claimed they never agreed to play and blamed Coachella for the confusion and I remember seeing something on their site and they seemed really angry.

Couldn't have been worse than what happened to Evil Nine in 2005. Goldenvoice screwed up telling them their proper set time, so they never made it in time to play their alloted set (opening Sunday I think), but they still came back and closed it in 2007. So wounds heel.

And are people really that excited about a new Daft Punk tour? Whatever happened to making a new album? Do you really want the same pyramid and same set again?

No pyramid this time, i think

Yes. Once wasn't enough. I'm sure the set will be a different mix, at least. But I'm guessing a new stage setup.

"Sadness! According to a representative from the Creative Artists Agency, Billboard.com's report quoting another CAA rep as saying that there is a Daft Punk tour in the works is false. "There are no plans for an upcoming Daft Punk tour, the information in the article is incorrect." We're told that Billboard.com is changing their story."

Erik, DG has been sober for over ten years. And drink was never his problem. Try heroin.

That's funny. Sad, but funny.

And, they would have to come up with something new-and that something new would have to be better than the pyramid. Seems like that would be hard to do.

Sorry. He wasn't drunk. Tired from all the touring maybe-or pissed at the shitty crowd, but not drunk.

it was a two-way street with that performance

The performance wasn't great (especially not compared to the next night in Vegas), but it wasn't because Dave was drunk.

That is all.

Remember when they said Tricky was playing Coachella 2006? Or that Prince and Rage were playing Bumbershoot?

Just read Ben Hillier is producing their new one again; should be ready for a tour early next year.

Bosco
07-29-2008, 12:27 PM
Why would they tour again so soon anyways? There is no new material....

Unless, they totally throw the pyramid/robot concept out the window and go old school on us... I might be the only one in favor of that though.... I just dont see a reason why.

07-29-2008, 12:54 PM
i wouldnt want to see them again anyway unless it was a totally new and different show.


and DM was horrible at coachella. sorry, i tried to watch their set but got very bored very quickly.

Me too. I probably would have waited to buy tickets until after I heard what the first show was like. If it was the same set and the pryamid, I wouldnt have bothered going. If one or the other were different, I would strongly consider it. If both were different I would have been 100% there.

yeah, say what you will about them but as journalists they are pretty crappy

It was a Billboard article with a list of bands about to tour and Daft Punk were the last on the pretty-long list. Nothing specific about DP at all, and Pitchfork puts it up and puts an exclamation point on it. MF that.

Look for a tour in 2009. Their albums have all come out in March, four years apart, and four years from Human After All is March 2009... which would make opening a tour at Coachella really the best option. Aww yeah.
