Whoa, Daft Punk Joined Phoenix Onstage At MSG
Last night’s Phoenix/Dirty Projectors/Wavves show at Madison Square Garden became an even bigger deal when Daft Punk joined the headliners during the encore. According to the Village Voice, they did “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” and added extra synths and noise to “1901.” This was Daft Punk’s first live appearance in three years (except for a brief cameo during the Grammy Awards in 2008), and hopefully the first of many now that Tron: Legacy is coming out.
Watch “1901,” “Around The World,” and “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” below, and watch the giddy, bewildered crowd try to absorb what just happened:
Phoenix guitarist Laurent Brancowitz was in a short-lived band called Darlin’ with Daft Punk’s Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
