You know who bloody loves the Grammy Awards?
Daft Punk absolutely loves the Grammy Awards.
Who knew that the one thing that’d coax two reclusive Frenchmen out of hiding would be a glittering Los Angeles party absolutely sodden with free booze and celebrities? Really makes you think.
The iconic electronic duo last performed live at the Grammy Awards ceremony three years ago, right at the peak of success of their last megalithic album ‘Random Access Memories.’ You know, that one they made squillions off of despite not touring it in any capacity take that DIY nerds.
Now, in the blessed year of our lord 2017 – which, if numerical patterns are anything to go by, should be one in which we see a sprawling ‘Alive 2017‘ global tour before year’s end *FINGERS BLOODY CROSSED* – the duo has announced their long-awaited and long-overdue return to the stage.
At the Grammys. Again.
Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter are officially headed back to LA, where they will once again take the Staples Centre stage for the music industry’s gaudy night-of-nights.
This time around, the duo will be backing up The Weeknd, as they all belt out the two tunes they collaborated on for Weeknd’s last album: The chart-topping ‘Starboy,’ and the criminally underrated album-closer ‘I Feel It Coming.’
The star-studded if not fucked-up-jukebox-on-shuffle live lineup at the awards will also feature Metallica, Bruno Mars, Adele, John Legend, Carrie Underwood, and Australia’s own underpants gnome-lookin’-ass Keith Urban.
The Grammy Awards go down Monday, February 13th (Aus time). James Corden will be hosting/carpool karaoke-ing his way through the whole shebang.
