Daft Punk are to make their first TV appearance since releasing 'Random Access Memories' on US late-night satirical show The Colbert Report next Tuesday (August 6).

Stephen Colbert apparently offered a subtle hint that the French duo would be appearing on his show when he guested on another US show, Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, earlier this week and danced onto set to the sounds of 'Get Lucky'. Daft Punk's appearance has now been confirmed by Comedy Central, the cable network that airs The Colbert Report.

"The Colbert Report's concert series 'Colbchella' will feature Daft Punk on Tuesday (August 6)," a Comedy Central representative told MTV News.

Although the French duo are appearing as part of the show's annual concert series 'Colbchella', which featured performances last year (2012) from Santigold, The Flaming Lips and Grizzly Bear, it's not known if Daft Punk will play live, give an interview or perhaps do both. Additionally, there's been no confirmation that their 'Get Lucky' collaborators Pharrell Williams and Nile Rodgers are due to appear.

The Chic leader recently denied that Daft Punk are booked to perform at his Nile Rodgers Dance Party event in Riverhead, New York on August 19. He has confirmed, however, that the dance duo will help him finish off a batch of songs he started recording with Chic 35 years ago and had previously thought were lost.
