Daft Punk bring robotic stage show to Wireless
Daft Punk brought their stunning stage show to London tonight (June 14) as they played the O2 Wireless Festival at Hyde Park.

The French duo - who were watched by members of the Klaxons and actress Keira Knightley - had the crowd dancing non-stop with a megamix which lasted for one and half hours.

They were dressed in their trademark robot outfits and played behind a huge, flashing 3D pyramid structure. Their extensive mix included their hits 'One More Time', 'Da Funk' and 'Around The World'.

They returned for an encore which saw them wearing glow in the dark outfits. They mixed a reprise of 'Aerodynamic' with 'Music Sounds Better With You' a track by band member Thomas Bangalter's side-project Stardust.

Daft Punk played:

'Robot Rock'
'Oh Yeah'
'Touch It'
'Television Rules The Nation'
'Steam Machine'
'Around The World'
'Harder Better Faster Stronger'
'Too Long'
'Face To Face'
'Short Circuit'
'One More Time'
'Forget About The World'
'Prime Time Of Your Life'
'Rollin and Scratchin'
'Da Funk'
'Rock N' Roll'
'Human After All'
'Revolution 909'
'Music Sounds Better With You'

Earlier, Klaxons headlining slot on the XFM stage was in such demand that security had to be called and people were only allowed in on a one-in-one-out basis.

With many fans watching the band from outside, Jamie Reynolds dedicated 'Gravity's Rainbow' to “everyone who's outside”.

Reynolds also fibbed to the crowd about forthcoming single 'Not Over Yet' joking, “Stef (Halperin, drummer) wrote this in 1992.”

Meanwhile, LCD Soundsystem played extended versions of their songs including new single 'All My Friends' and CSS performed a new song, which singer Lovefoxxx introduced as 'The Beautiful Song'.

Other bands who performed on the day included Datarock who said they were excited to be back in the UK with singer Fredrik Saroea admitting: “We've just got the plane back from LA and we've only had three hours sleep!”

NME.COM's coverage of the O2 Wireless Festival continues tomorrow (June 17) when Kaiser Chiefs headline in London.
