Could Daft Punk possibly teasing a new tour or is a troll just messing with fans?

Rumors of "Alive 2017" a third Daft Punk tour have been swirling for awhile now, but they may have heated up again with a new video that is circulating around the web via Youtube. 

Daft Punk hasn't toured since 2007, but the video has many fans hoping for another chance to see the french duo back in action. The video description on YouTube reads out a list of coordinates for locations that, as one Reddit user points out, matches the exact touring locations and order of the 2007 tour, leading many to think the video, which is not from an official Daft Punk or Columbia Records account, may be an elaborate (and well done) troll job.

More fuel was added to the fire when a mysterious page dedicated to Daft Punk existed but was then deleted, on the Lollapalooza website. We still don't have a date for the lineup release, but Bonnaroo just announced The Weeknd as one of three headliners and the Canadian artist features Daft Punk on his recent hit song, "Starboy."

Another factor to consider is the band's debut album, Homework, was released in March 1997, nearly 20 years ago. Are we seeing the duo tease an anniversary release or are the stars lining up for a Daft Punk tour that hits a few festivals or an international road trip?

Either way, it seems like something might be in the works and I can't wait to see what it is.
