It do happens every now and then, but who can have enough of this ground breaking act. So for those who still hope for a new world tour, this can at least beef up the expectations. A tip – do act quick to watch it as these videos tend to be removed quickly 🙂
Background: A performance from legendary French electronic duo, Daft Punk, at Lollapalooza over a decade ago has been uploaded to YouTube by a user who shares archive footage.
Shot in August 2007, the festival performance was originally mixed live for screens at Grant Park in Chicago, and features some of Daft Punk’s biggest hits from ‘Technologic’ and ‘Around The World’ to ‘One More Time’ and ‘Da Funk’.
It’s not the first archive performance from the pair to be shared recently. Last year as part of Japan’s Summer Sonic festival, a live 2006 performance from the duo was available to watch for free via YouTube for one weekend.
In 2019, Daft Punk’s ‘Random Access Memories’ was revealed as the best-selling dance music album of the decade. And as reported the online vinyl marketplace Discogs the fourth studio album by the French electronic giants came in at number 62 in the UK’s top 100 selling vinyl albums of the 2010s, as compiled by the Official Charts. Paying tribute to late 1970s and early 1980s American music, the 2003 release won several categories at the 56th Grammy Awards, including Album of the Year and Best Dance/Electronica Album. Topping the list is Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours, as well as albums by Amy Winehouse, Pink Floyd and Stone Roses.
Earlier this year, Daft Punk’s iconic Alive show was shared in full online using never-seen-before fan footage and some expert editing.
