Daft Wiki

This article is about the tour, not the album. for the album, see Alive 2007 (album).


Alive 2007 is the name of the worldwide tour Daft Punk went on in 2006-2007, and also the name of the live album it is recorded on.

While the 2006 concerts were not given a formal title, the 2007 performances were advertised as "Alive 2007". The 2006 performances and 2007 tour as a whole was later retroactively named "Alive 2006/2007".[1]

The tour was met with praise and critical acclaim. The Times described Daft Punk's set as a "memorable sensory spectacle, both dazzling and deafening".[2]

The visuals of the tour were set up by XL Video.[3] The company provided eight-core Mac Pro units running Catalyst v4 and Final Cut Pro. Daft Punk approached the company with their visual concept for the shows. "They came to us with a pretty fixed idea of what they wanted", said head of XL Video, Richard Burford. "They wanted to mix live video with effects. Using the eight-core Mac Pros, we were able to take in eight digital sources and treat them as video streams. Then they could use Catalyst to coordinate the video with lighting effects and add their own effects in on the fly. The final digital video streams ran to LED screens."[3]

At the start of 2006, Daft Punk announced plans for a number of special summer shows. On April 29th, Daft Punk performed at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival where they received an overwhelmingly positive response for their first U.S. performance since 1997.[4] 

Thomas Bangalter had initially been reported as saying that there would be a DVD of their recent live set. He later emphasized his reluctance for such a release, as the duo felt that online amateur videos of their performances were more compelling than anything captured professionally.[5]

Kavinsky, Sebastian, Ratatat, The Rapture, and Busy P were among the rotating support acts and openers for Alive 2007.
