Daft Punk world tour slated for 2010-2011

In the wake of last week’s ‘Daft Punk in Shanghai’ fiasco, the legendary French duo have released a public statement denouncing the ticketing scam while at the same time revealing the next time they’ll hit the road will be for a world tour in 2010-2011.

“The band are not touring this year, and at no point were they approached for this show, and at no point was there ever a possibility that they would do such a show,” read the statement, posted on Daft Punk’s official Facebook fan page.

“The band’s representatives are currently looking into what future action can be taken regarding the fraudsters responsible for the current scam,” it continued, before leaving the reader with one rather tasty bit of info. “Daft Punk look forward to visiting and performing in China as part of their next world tour, in 2010 or 2011.”

Midway through 2008 inthemix broke the story that the duo were back in the studio and working on new material, following an interview with their now-ex manager Busy P. “The boys are in a studio in Paris at the moment,” Busy P told ITM at the time. “And I can’t wait to listen to their new stuff! The good thing is that they are making music at the moment.”

A new Daft Punk album and a world tour in the foreseeable future? Let’s just hope they factor Australia in to their travel plans, after the outright hysteria of their December 2007 visit we think we’ve calmed down enough to do it all again.

I would love to see faithless tour, even moreso than Daft Punk. The next show is going to be very similar if not identical to the last shows for Nevereverland. Now, I am not saying that myself along with everyone else who went along thought it was amazing

Oooo I am really anticipating a new album. It should be quite different from previous ones if their trends are to be believed. Homework was house, Discovery was syntho pop/disco and Human After All was techno. LOL if it is trance. And I said this in the

To Kurtis: I highly, highly doubt that DP would do the same show AGAIN 3 years later for another world tour. Also, they have been rumored to be working on some sort of new material in the studio - given that this tour is likely to happen in the next 1-2

the sydney NeverEver Land tour was their last show with the Pyramid as the theme. i dont think thomas had his video camera out during the encore for shits and giggles, he was capturing the last minutes of their unbelievable show that rocked sydney. t
