Former manager of Daft Punk and Ed Banger Record label owner Busy P has had a message relayed from Daft Punk’s new management confirming that their will be no new world tour. Or has it ?
Busy P said: “Just got this email from the Punk’s manager. Too bad, I guess we’ll all have to wait to see the robots on stage again” he said. He relayed the following message from Daft Punk’s management on his Cool Cats blog.
“There are no tour dates currently planned for Daft Punk. The recent rumors of a Daft Punk tour are false. We would like to ensure that no fans are taken advantage of by fictitious rumors of upcoming shows.”
I decided to do some digging and came across Daft Punk’s official Alive 2007 website, checking the latest news it says that their had been a scam earlier in the year falsely claiming a a secret gig in Shangri, China. This was denied by the band and the statement went on to say “the band are look forward to touring China during their next world tour in 2010 or 2011″.
The statement directly contradicts their latest statement – so the story continues.
