Much has occurred in the music world in recent years with artists like OutKast, U2, Grateful Dead, LCD Soundsystem, Garth Brooks and Adele all making their way back to the tour stage – notably on the “return” front. Daft Punk may shortly be joining that list as well, if rumors prove true.
While many sites were quick to share the possible tour news, this article on Gizmodo did an especially thorough job in assessing the “clues” from Alive2017.com, the strangely bare website at the root of the Daft Punk tour rumors.
Key Daft Punk Tour Clues According to Gizmodo
Concealed behind the “I” is a countdown to the date Oct. 27, 2016, which additionally is noted in the page’s source code as the “wake date.” Additionally within the source code are various sets of numbers that Gizmodo found to be coordinates for cities like Paris, Los Angeles, London, New York, Tokyo, Sao Paulo, Ibiza, and Indio (the site of Coachella).
Before you get overly excited, it’s of course also possible the site is all part of an elaborate prank, since it should be noticed that both Consequence of Sound and Pitchfork have reported sources refusing a coming Daft Punk Tour for 2017.
Either way, we’re expecting something concrete will be revealed from today. Stay tuned.
