Last month, Daft Punk, the legendary French duo of Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter, announced their decision of splitting up, after 28 years in the industry. While this certainly is the end of an era with fans hoping for a reunion show, the Manchester-based Kaleidoscope Orchestra have decided to dedicate a new tribute concert to the legendary duo in the iconic Manchester Cathedral this summer.
The Kaleidoscope Orchestra will be performing two back-to-back shows on 20 August at 6 PM and 8:30 PM this year, all with an intimate candlelit setting for the event. They will play classical renditions of Daft Punk’s biggest hits along with fan favourites.
The event is planned to be socially distanced with the attendees required to wear a mask, which must be kept on at all times for a “safe, comfortable and socially-distanced event.”
Tickets are now on sale and can be purchased for £55 here. This Daft Punk tribute will be one of a kind so make sure to grab your tickets before they sell out to watch the Kaleidoscope Orchestra honour and pay tribute to one of the most influential dance music groups of all time.
