All the concerts will see Moroder playing piano, vocoder, and synths alongside a live band and vocalists. Expect also a spectacular stage show with dazzling visuals, lighting and synchronized video of Donna Summer performing!

In a recent interview with The Guardian, Moroder commented on the show saying: “It is something I have always wanted to do, fans kept reaching out to me, asking if I would ever do a real tour. Back in the days it was unthinkable for producers to ever leave their studios. That territory was reserved for the singers. Today, DJ’s and music producers have become the superstars of popular dance music, so the time feels right and I am so excited to be finally doing this!

A four-time Grammy Award winner, Moroder is dubbed as one of the founding fathers of Disco and EDM. Over the years, he has collaborated with many legendary artists like Donna Summer, David Bowie, Kylie Minogue, Irene Cara, Janet Jackson, Blondie  and, more recently, Daft Punk. But his illustrious career is not just limited solely to music, since Moroder is also known for having worked on a variety of film and television scores, such as Cat People, Scarface, Midnight Express, Top Gun and Flashdance. All this led him to win three Oscars: Best Original Score for Midnight Express (1978); Best Song for ‘Flashdance…What a Feeling‘, from the film Flashdance (1983); and Best Song for ‘Take My Breath Away‘, from Top Gun (1986).

Tickets for ‘A Celebration of the 80s‘ will go on sale on Friday, 12th October at 9am on the website Live Nation. Check out the tour dates below and head here for more info!
