It can be argued that 2013 was the year of Daft Punk as the French duo unleashed
their critically and commercially successful Random Access Memories LP in an
inventive way earlier this year. The one thing the pair didn't do was perform live, but
according to Rolling Stone that will change next month.
Daft Punk are scheduled to make their first live performance in support of Random
Memories at the Grammy Awards on January 26. It also marks the duo's first televised
performance since they appeared with Kanye West at the 2008 Grammys.
"We learned that because they had such a good experience with us when they appeared with
Kanye in 2008, they were happy to discuss a performance on this year's show," Executive
Producer Ken Ehrlich told Rolling Stone. "Conversations took place over a period of a
of months, and finally they agreed to be a part of this year's telecast. Details of the
performance are still being worked out, but the idea of having the exclusive television
performance by this iconic band is something we're very, very excited about."
The Frenchmen are up for four Grammys including Album Of The Year.
