Daft Punk will play live at The Grammy Awards in 2014

The robot duo will make their first performance in support of 'Random Access Memories' in January.


Daft Punk will play the Grammy Awards next year.

The French duo have been nominated for about a million awards for their 2013-dominating fourth studio album, 'Random Access Memories', and the performance will mark the first (and potentially only) time they'll be doing a live show to support it. Show producer Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone that the performance will be "a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors their multi-nominated music", although he didn't give any solid details about it. 

This is significant news, because Daft Punk haven't done a televised performance since 2008, when they teamed up with Kanye West for a live performance of Stronger at – you guessed it – the Grammys. Before that, their last live tour was a career-spanning performance that nominally supported their third record, 'Human After All', and was documented on the great live album 'Alive 2007'.

The ceremony will be broadcast on January 26th 2014, so if you're excited about the prospect of two middle aged men dressing up as robots and singing songs about sex through a vocoder, then make an note of that in your diary.
