Daft Punk Schedules Appearance on Colbert, Then Cancels Last Minute

You’d think we’d be used to this by now.  It’s become a yearly tradition for Daft Punk to be “rumored” as a headliner at Coachella, Ultra, EDC Vegas, and every festival everywhere only to have them continue to refuse to bring out the pyramid and party like it’s 2007 again. This time they were as good as booked to show up for Stephen Colbert’s “StePhest Colbchella”, but a last-minute contract dispute with MTV denied us one more time.

Part of the deal Daft Punk had with MTV stipulated that the first performance following their new album had to be a “surprise” appearance at the VMAs. While the element of surprise may be gone, the French duo’s contractual obligations are not, leaving us to wait until August 25th for the robots come out to play.

Not to be upstaged by Daft Punk’s no-show, Colbert instead chose to dance to “Get Lucky” with Hugh Laurie, Jeff Bridges, the Rockettes, Jimmy Fallon, and Bryan Cranston, so at the very least we got a year’s supply of awkward white people dancing to tide us over.

For the full performance, head here.
