thank you superfiction, I figured it was a fake especially considering it was in China...
Superfiction = the voice of reason in the Daft Punk world.
The grammar and choice of words seems way off...HIDDEN TOUR 09
After 2 years of research and numerous attempts, we have finally found the secret.
We have quite jealously kept this secret and will be revealing it to you for the first time this Friday the 13th of February at a secret location.
Our matrix will be mixing sound and light in order to transform you into an eternal fan of electronic music.
You have been selected among many. You must keep this secret to yourself!
Uhh, the last Daft Punk show was in Sydney, AUS Dec 22. 2007 - That was only 1 year & 2 months ago (considering you don't count the Grammy's last year..).PRESS RELEASE
After 3 years of silence and many months of preparation, Thomas & Guy-Man are working on the studio release of their latest album. In particular, the duo have directed a video illustrating the title "Obama", a remix of "Aerodynamic", in which the name of the newest President is presented by a pronunciation software.
This latest album will be released along with an Asian Tour of 4 dates starting in Shanghai on the 13th of February 2009.
The concept of this tour is directed exclusively by the limited number of proposed seats.
On a known date, the concert will take place in a secret location which will be revealed to participants just a few hours before the concert, adding the unique Thomas & Guy-Man touch for 2009.
The following is a mixed-media stop motion music video and celebration commemorating the election and inauguration of Barack Obama as the forty-fourth president of these United States. Audibly showcasing Adam Freeland's remix of Daft Punk's "Aerodynamic" and the imaginative stylings of forward thinking toy artists Dalek, Bill McMullen and Kubrick to name just a few. Independently animated and directed by the progressive minds of the directing team GOLD, the piece is a labor of love that invites everyone to join in or create their own celebration this coming Tuesday January the 20th.
DP did not direct or have anything to do with that video, so I don't know why they added that there...
Altho these do look legit....
edit - I take it back. Wait it out guys....

dont fuck with my heaaaddd
edit - 11 tickets = 804 dollars.
yeah i should have put rmb instead of yen, but it is still 804 bucks, because i searched it as 5500rmb, which is how much 11 tickets are.
I just sent Pitchfork a "news tip" regarding this, so hopefully they do some investigating and either confirm or debunk it...
or they just ignore me.

From the Facebook event profile:
http://www.facebook.com/event.php?ei...2100158&ref=mfNow the french mythical electronic band Daft Punk is coming in Shanghai for one very special night on friday 13th February with a devious concept called dafthidden 09 tour as the concert venue will be kept hidden till Friday 13th morning. Daft Punk is working on his new album for 2 years and want to share the sound with their fans only before the album launch. And they planned 3 dates in Asia including Shanghai, 2 in Europe and 1 in US.
“ We don't believe in the star system. We want the focus to be on the music. If we have to create an image, it must be an artificial image. That combination hides our physicality and also shows our view of the star system. It is not a compromise. ”
“ We're trying to separate the private side and the public side. It's just that we're a little bit embarrassed by the whole thing. We don't want to play this star system thing. We don't want to get recognised in the streets. Yes. Everyone has accepted us using masks in photos so far, which makes us happy. Maybe sometimes people are a little bit disappointed but that's the only way we want to do it. We think the music is the most personal thing we can give. The rest is just about people taking themselves seriously, which is all very boring sometimes.”
“ I think people understand what we are doing. I know many people who maybe like the way we are handling things. People understand that you don't need to be on the covers of magazines with your face to make good music. Painters or other artists, you don't know them but you know what they are doing. We are very happy that the concept in itself is becoming famous. In France, you speak of Daft Punk and I'm sure millions of people have heard it, but less than a few thousand people know our face - which is the thing we're into. We control it, but it's not us physically, our persons. We don't want to run into people who are the same age as us, shaking our hand and saying, 'Can I have your autograph?' because we think we're exactly like them. Even girls, they can fall in love with your music, but not with you. You don't always have to compromise yourself to be successful. The playing with masks is just to make it funnier. Pictures can be boring. We don't want all the rock n' roll poses and attitudes - they are completely stupid and ridiculous today." “ We never like to do the same thing twice. It's more fun and entertaining for us to do something different, whether it's wearing masks or developing a persona that merges fiction and reality. We're happy to give back to the masses. ”
***Now you understand why this is a "hidden Tour" just for the more devoted and honest new school electronic music Fans***

-> Run and get your ticket at Taicang lu 58, (Xintiandi) if you want to be in this unique event!
Good luck guys!!
Check it out!
This is a seriously good hoax, or a seriously good surprise. I want to believe the latter, but it's very questionable.
WTF is this?! Totally a hoax: http://www.sun7news.com/index.php?co...TC-WWYCOVS1001
Maybe the grammar errors are because the site is meant to be read in Mandarin and this is just the shitty English translation?
DAFT PUNK ≥ DAFT PUNK
I bet its a scam put on by someone entirely unrelated to daft punk. They suckered a bunch of people into buying "tickets" but come friday morning there will be no "secret text" revealing the show's location. money money money.
