Daft Punk fans share footage from the duo’s final few shows

It’s been 14 years since the last tour, but fans aren’t ready to give up the memories yet

French electronic music duo Daft Punk confirmed their split today (22 February), causing a ripple of reminiscence from its fanbase.

The elusive artists announced their departure from music-making in the most Daft Punk way ever: by not really saying anything at all. An eight-minute video excerpt from their 2006 film Electroma was uploaded to YouTube, titled Epilogue. The news was of the split was confirmed shortly after by their publicist.

Daft Punk’s last show was in 2017 when they graced the stage of the Grammy Awards alongside The Weeknd playing a medley of songs they produced for the singer. Three years prior, they were joined by Pharell Williams and Stevie Wonder, performing the omnipresent Get Lucky. Watch them both below.

These performances are, of course, relatively short and barely scratch the surface of the robot’s iconic discography. The last time fans got a taste of a more spectacular show was back in 2007, in the Alive 2007 tour. While many die-hard Daft fans probably missed the opportunity to catch the tour – and subsequently prayed for a follow-up – those that did manage to make it have uploaded footage online.

Daft Punk had their fair share of shows in the late 90s too, with some footage from before they even released their seminal debut, Homework. 

Plenty of artists and musicians are paying tribute to the duo following news of the break-up. Disclosure tweeted: “Words can’t describe the inspiration & knowledge we gained from listening to the 2 robots over the years”.
