Giorgio Moroder – The Celebration of the 80s
Legendary music producer Giorgio Moroder announces his first ever live show for Dublin. Hailed by many as the Godfather of Disco or even the very founder of electronic dance music, Moroder will perform at Dublin’s 3Arena on 8 April 2019.
A Celebration of the 80s will be an evening filled with his dance hits, both classics and recent. Fans will see Moroder conduct, play the vocoder, electronic effects and sounds. He will play the piano and he will share personal stories that have never left the walls of his studio before. He will pay tribute to longtime muse Donna Summer, with the disco-diva live on screen performing in sync with Moroder and his band.
Tickets For Dublin’s 3Arena go on sale this Friday 12 October at 9am.
A major influence in the music industry for over 55 years. Moroder 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”).
Since 2013 Moroder has been performing as a DJ and contributed to Daft Punk’s “Giorgio by Moroder” from their hit album Random Access Memories. This collaboration would in 2014 land him the Grammy for Album of the Year. In 2015, Moroder released his latest studio album Déjà Vu, which contains collaborations with Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Kelis, among others.
