Following the release of Daft Punk’s highly anticipated album Random Access Memories, demand to see them live has rocketed.
Searches for Daft Punk tickets on Ticketmaster have increased by 517% since the album was released – and that’s without any confirmed tour dates.
Daft Punk haven’t toured since 2007 and unfortunately for their fans it doesn’t look like they’re planning to hit the road any time soon. Speaking to BBC Radio1, the duo announced they’re working on a remix album. “We’re working on some mixes ourselves. So, yes, there will probably be Daft Punk mixes of Daft Punk. Usually, we never mix ourselves, that’s something we feel we’re interested in doing this time.”
Despite the surge in demand to see them live, interest in their fourth studio album appears to be waning – second week sales of the album in the US have fallen by 73%.
Random Access Memories was released following months of hype and went straight in at #1 on the UK Album Chart, becoming the fastest selling album of the year, and remained there for two weeks.
