That’s right, Electronic pioneers are planning a national stadium tour for 2011/2012 to correspond with the release of the Tron soundtrack. The Daily Swarm spoke with the managing partner, and head of music for CAA (the firm the represents the duo), who said that he expects “the film soundtrack and tour will lead a dance music juggernaut worldwide.” He added, “This is going to be the biggest tour of next year.”
Along with the release of Tron, Disney has announced that beginning on October 8th leading up to its release on December 17th, it will be hosting “ElecTRONica,” which they’re calling “the greatest nighttime dance party to ever rock Disney California Adventure Park.
Sources say that with the release of the Tron Soundtrack in November, Daft Punk is set to make a series of appearances leading up to the film’s release. They’ll be doing surprise live sets at film screenings in major cities, and are currently considering a set at the film’s Hollywood premiere.
It has been speculated that Daft Punk will begin their world tour at the Coachella Valley Music and Art Festival, which is April 15th, 16th, and 17th of 2011, just as they did for their Alive tour in 2006/2007.
Wherever Daft Punk ends up playing, it is great news for all Daft Punk fans that a long awaited tour has been announced.
