Daft Punk are set to be in Los Angeles this weekend after being confirmed to perform live at the upcoming Grammy Awards ceremony with The Weeknd. The Grammys 2017 will take place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on February 12.
The robot duo previously teamed up with The Weeknd for a number of tracks of his latest album ‘Starboy’, notably the lead single and title track, as well as the acclaimed ‘I Feel It Coming’.
Meanwhile, tweets posted byDonald Trump’s Press Secretary Sean Spicer about Daft Punk in 2014 recently resurfaced and made headlines. The rediscovered tweets sent by Spicer while Daft Punk – or “Daft Funk” as he referred to the French duo – were performing at the Grammy Awards that year.
“Daft Punk, this is your 10 seconds in the spotlight – u r blowing it,” Spicer wrote, before telling a follower that he “was an early and still fan, but come on helmets? tey (sic) need to grow up.”
