Daft Punk Join Phoenix Live At Madison Square Garden

It’s a great time to be a Daft Punk fan. The electronic duo have popped up as producers, appeared on highly anticipated movie soundtracks and ambitious Adidas commercials, and last night at Madison Square Garden, the French DJs — who haven’t performed live since their 2007 Alive tour — helped their buddies in Phoenix close out their show by performing “Harder Better Faster Stronger” and “Around The World”. And they picked a pretty neat palindrome to do it as well – 10/20/2010. Watch a bunch of New Yorkers go insane as Daft Punk makes their surprise cameo after the jump — and check out their day-glo Tron: Legacy poster, too.

Here’s a mash-up of “Harder Better Faster Stronger” / “Around The World”:

And here is Daft Punk (who, coincidentally, have a song called “Phoenix” on their album Homework) adding an extra beat to Phoenix’s “1901.”

Disney just revealed the electronic duo’s Tron: Legacy poster, and it’s pretty awesome (and less expensive to own than a $795 Tron-inspired shoe).
