Updated: Reddit has come to the conclusion this is indeed a fake, and the locations listed were just the locations of the Alive 2007 tour.
On a day where the entire media is buzzing about a fake news story, we hope we’re not adding to the pile with this latest rumor. We express great doubt at Daft Punk touring rumors, but Daft Punk Alive 2017 has been a long held rumor awaited since 2007. Now that 2017 has begun, the rumor mill is back up and running.
The latest comes from a mysterious video uploaded to YouTube by a mysterious entity. The video certainly feels like a Daft Punk visual style. Commenters on the video seem to have cracked the numerical code which corresponds to global cities. The list includes Paris, Amsterdam, Los Angeles, Sydney, and more. The numbers 4162016211411 apparently spells out “Daft Punk”.
While we advise you to take this with a grain of salt, we can at least all rest assured that there’s more truth to it than the current crop of fake news circulating in the media today.
