It’s hard to think of any Italian who has made a bigger contribution to the international pop music scene than producer, songwriter and performer, Giorgio Moroder.
If you haven’t heard his name before, you’ve definitely heard some of his tracks which include Donna Summers’ “Love to Love You Baby” (a song which is often credited with kick-starting the disco craze), Blondie’s “Call Me”, and David Bowie’s “Putting Out People”. He has won 3 Oscars for composing soundtracks to classic 80s movies like Top Gun (“Take My Breath Away”), Flashdance and Midnight Express. And if that wasn’t enough, Moroder has four Golden Globes to his name, four Grammys and over 100 gold and platinum records.
Besides his impressive discography for films such as the Never Ending Story, Superman III, Rambo III and Beverly Hills Cop II, Moroder also wrote songs for the 1984, 1988 and 2008 Olympics as well as the anthem for 1990 FIFA World Cup “Un Estate Italiana”.
Despite his storied career and his inevitable induction into the Dance Music Hall of Fame in 2004, Moroder shows no signs of slowing down. The 76 year old returns to Italy, and to thankfully for us, to Milan, on 8 April 2017 at Alcatraz to close out the Salone del Mobile festival.
Moroder’s set will surely feature many of his signature disco sounds, as well as tracks from his recent album Déjà vu, which featured collaborations with artists including Kylie Minogue, Sia and Britney Spears.
Moroder will be supported by Ale Bucci, and tickets will be €25 for the second release, while the third release will be €30. Read more here.
We highly recommend buying your tickets now, as this legend of disco and electronic music regularly sells out crowds.
