The legendary duo pull out of a last minute appearance, disappointing fans in the process.
The media-shy Daft Punk pulled out of an appearance last night on Stephen Colbert’s show ‘The Colbert Report’ just moments before they were scheduled to. The “Get Lucky” hit-makers were scheduled to appear on Comedy Central’s The Colbert Report on Tuesday evening. However, host Stephen Colbert was forced to announce that his guests wouldn’t be appearing after they failed to show up.
Reports suggest that the reason behind the no–show is due to breach of certain contractual agreements between the legendary duo & MTV. Although MTV and Comedy Central are owned by Viacom itself, Daft Punk have a contract with MTV’s Video Music Awards later this month, which restricts them from showing up on Colbert’s show.
Thomas & Guy have destroyed billboard charts with their comeback album ‘Random Access Memories’ and this is definitely a bummer for avid Daft Punk fans who find it very difficult to get a closer glimpse into their lives, owing to the extremely low profile they’ve maintained.
