After taking the internet by storm last week with the release of their collaborative effort with The Weeknd on “Starboy,” Daft Punk became the subject of much speculation from dance music fans as word of a 2017 tour from the iconic duo swept the rumor mill. An alleged leaked Lollapalooze poster hinted at Daft Punk as headliners next year, stirring up some massive anticipation from music fans due to the ten year hiatus since the robot group last hit the road.
However, it looks like fans will need to curb their excitement over a Daft Punk tour for next year as a source comes forward to deny the rampant speculation. The anonymous industry insider reported to Pitchfork and Consequence of Sound that the duo have no intention to break their touring hiatus in 2017 and that the rumors are just that.
While fans will understandably be disappointed by the update, there is at least a brief glimmer of hope that Daft Punk will continue to release new material in the near future following their latest collaboration with The Weeknd. But for now, waiting is the name of the game.
