Not saying I'm expecting them on the lineup, but don't you think that while agreeing to pay them some insane seven figure sum (more than almost anyone else would pay), GV would also try to have rights to the worldwide hype and publicity that would come from running the first confirmed DP show after such a long hiatus?
Daft Punk will never play a show again, if the contract they signed with Disney has anything to do with it.
You're probably right. Daft Punk signed an extremely restrictive, multi-decade contract with Disney all so they could score every shitty new movie that the company churns out.
It seems that they did good as far as their bank accounts are concerned, but they basically fucked the fans. The same fans who come in here every single day begging for DP. There's always youtube :lool
Oh shit. Oh well.
did you really just bring zafocaine to this side of the board. FUCK!
He's always been attracted to a nice big shiny helmet or two.
Regardless of Coachella, the new album is indeed coming out:
maybe doing lolla?
That would piss me off to an irrational degree if their first US show in 6 years was at the shitshow that is Lollapalooza. Anything other than Coachella would annoy me but Lolla would be the absolute worst.
I don't see them doing any shows before Coachella 2014, and given what's happened (or hasn't, rather) in recent years, I wouldn't be surprised if they waited even later.
Daft Punk will release their first studio album in eight years in May:)
Someone please assure me that they won't end up at something like Lolla or Roo for their first American festival back...
No one can assure you anything, but if you read this thread you'll see that they currently have no plans to play this year.
That's all I needed to hear. Smoochies.
I hope they go to Roo. An unopposed set would be nice for lack of conflict. I'd wait a couple hours to be in their pit too.
I'd have to go to Lolla if they were there. Ick.
we would all have to go wherever they do their first show...it would be really convenient if they would play Coachella though.
Sorry for bumping with this misleading title, but Daft Punk just changed their cover photo, profile picture, and posted a link to their website on Facebook. And if it wasn't already, they confirmed their label as Columbia as the logo is in their cover photo. something is happening...
sure looks like an album cover to me...
oh my gawd, Daft Punk updated their website, that means they are for sure are going to tour and play all the cities I've said they were going to play. Ive already sold one child off to slavery and spanked out about 4 gallons of spunk to take to the sperm bank so I can afford one ticket.
