Synth pioneer Giorgio Moroder has revealed that a future Daft Punk tour will be a long way off.

The French dance duo have yet to perform material from their album 'Random Access Memories' live, but have said that they are in no rush to announce a tour despite fan pressure and the financial incentive.

Moroder, who appears on the album, says in an interview with Mixmag: "I’m afraid from what I read and hear that it’s going to take them a long time before they go on tour."

However, he goes on to add that if the duo asked him to appear with them, he would be "more than happy". "In fact," he added, "It would be great because whatever they’re going to do it will be sensational! From what I kind of sense they may go the big stages and do shows for 50 to 80,000. I would jump at the chance to do it."

At the end of last year (2013), it was announced that Daft Punk will perform at the Grammys on January 26, which takes place at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. Daft Punk are nominated for five awards on the night, including the highly coveted Record Of The Year.

Speaking about what will be Daft Punk's first televised performance since 2008, Grammys Executive Producer Ken Ehrlich said fans can expect "a collaborative and celebratory stage performance that honors their multi-nominated music". Daft Punk's last TV performance came at the Grammys in 2008, when they played alongside Kanye West on his song 'Stronger'.

Lorde, James Blake, Tame Impala, Disclosure and The National are amongst the artists to receive nominations for the 56th annual Grammy Awards. Click hereto see the full list of nominees.
