The single stream, which began at 2:22 p.m. on 2/22/2022 PST or 9 a.m. this morning, Feb. 23 AEDT, appeared to catch the global press off guard, with many news outlets reporting the event after it was already started.

The concert is infamous in the Daft fan circles for being one of the only performances the duo has ever given without wearing their signature robot helmets.

Daft Punk is widely regarded as one of the most influential electronic bands of all time. Founded in 1993, the duo’s career spanned almost three decades before coming to an abrupt end in 2021. They have sold millions of albums worldwide while receiving over 15 million monthly streams on Spotify. This despite the fact that they never performed live after 2007.

Their first album, Homeworkwas groundbreaking in solidifying the sound of French House – blending funk, techno and disco – and bringing electronic music into the mainstream.

They have been cited as influences by such mainstream artists as LCD Soundsystem, Gesaffelstein and Pharrell Williams. Their 2013 album, Random access memoriesfeaturing Nile Rogers and Giorgio Moroder, went platinum and won several Grammy awards that year, including album of the year.
