Daft Punk Live At The Astoria

Daft Punk performing "Rollin' & Scratchin'" live at the Astoria Theatre in London on the 5th of November 1997

The Daftendirektour was Daft Punk's second live tour that started in the June of 1997 and then ended in the December of 1997.


For this tour, Daft Punk used their home studio equipment for the live stage. As Thomas Bangalter of the duo stated, "Everything was synched up, the drum machines, the bass lines. The sequencer was just sending out the tempos and controlling the beats and bars. On top of this structure we built all these layers of samples and various parts that we could bring in whenever we wanted to".[Citation needed]

Unfortunately, little video footage of said tour has been released, the only well-known footage was on D.A.F.T.: A Story About Dogs, Androids, Firemen and Tomatoes, which consisted of 8 different camera angles of Daft Punk performing at the Mayan Theatre in Los Angeles on the 17th of December 1997. However, on February 22nd, 2022 Daft Punk live-streamed for one time only the full video of their performance at the Mayan Theatre on Twitch to celebrate the 25th anniversary of their debut album Homework. Screen recordings of the live stream circulate on YouTube, but there is no official release of it.

The only official 45-minute audio recording of the tour was made for the album Alive 1997, which was first released on the promotional Daft Club website in early 2001, during the Discovery era. It was taken from their performance at the Que Club in Birmingham.
