Artist not on tour
We know his songs by heart, from “Love to Love You Baby” of Donna Summer to the original soundtrack of “Midnight Express” … Giorgio Moroder, the legendary producer (and idol of the Daft Punk) announces his first European tour in 2019.
Hailed by many as the Godfather of Disco or even the very founder of electronic dance music, at 78 years young of age the multi Academy Award and Grammy Award winning Moroder has been a major influence in the music industry for over 55 years. He was the first to put dance music to a repetitive percussive beat and to abandon the laws of harmony and put the synthesizer central to his music.
He first gained recognition in the 70s with both his own music and his productions for Donna Summer (“I Feel Love”, “On the Radio” and “Love to Love You Baby”, “Hot Stuff” among others). This led to a string of other collaborations with big names like Cher (“Bad Love”), Blondie (“Call Me”), David Bowie (“Cat People”), Debbie Harry (“Rush Rush”), Freddie Mercury (“Love Kills”), Bonnie Tyler (“Here She Comes”), and Pat Benatar (“Here’s My Heart).
The tour production entitled A Celebration of the 80’s will see the pioneering Italian songwriter, producer and DJ perform the highlights from his prolific career in a spectacular stage show with dazzling visuals and lighting alongside his band and vocalists. He will also pay tribute to longtime muse Donna Summer, with the disco-diva live on screen performing in sync with Moroder and his band.
