The debut date of Daft Punk's new record is set, but the location is a bit... daft.
Daft Punk will finally be premiering their newest, highly anticipated album, Random Access Memories.
We bet you never would have guessed that they’d do it at the Wee Waa Agricultural Show though. That’s in New South Wales. That’s in Australia, if you were wondering. Random couldn’t be more appropriate. The official release date for the album is May 21st, but on the 17th Wee Waa will host a playback of the record for the global launch party. With just 4000 tickets going on sale on the Crossing Theatre website, the event will be pretty exclusive. Well, so we assume.
The tickets will go on sale on April 12th and members of the Wee Waa Show Society will have guaranteed tickets. Additionally, for the ticket price, the lucky fans will also have the opportunity to enjoy "typical Australian country show entertainment, including the pet show, dog high jump, showgirl competition, cross cut saw competition, fireworks and much more," per the event site. It does sound very tempting.
Daft Punk Are Known For Their Thrilling Live Shows
As for the reason behind the odd concert venue, according to the Australian website musicfeeds, the French electronic duo chose Wee Waa after learning about "the CSIRO Australia Telescope and its array of satellite dishes." Maybe that’s another attraction for eager concert-goers to enjoy. Makes perfect sense to us.
