LEGENDARY GODFATHER OF ELECTRONICA

ANNOUNCES AUSTRALIAN AND NEW

ZEALAND HEADLINE SHOWS

Frontier Touring is delighted to confirm that iconic production pioneer Giorgio Moroder has

announced three headline shows this month in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland

alongside his appearances as special guest for Kylie’s upcoming Kiss Me Once Australian

tour.

An Academy Award-winning composer, superstar DJ, world-recognized songwriter and

prolific producer, Giorgio Moroder is one of the most influential and innovative artists of the

20th and 21st centuries. Having engineered the disco landscape of the seventies, Moroder

brought electronic music to the mainstream with frequent collaborator Donna Summer and

their anthemic hits ‘Love To Love You Baby’, ‘Hot Stuff’ and ‘I Feel Love’.

As well as his title as godfather of dance, Moroder has composed some of the most

recognizable film scores in cinema history, including The Never Ending Story, American

Gigolo, Cat People, Superman III, Scarface, Rambo III, and Beverly Hills Cop II as well as

hit soundtrack singles ‘Take My Breath Away’ by Berlin (Top Gun), ‘Flashdance’ by Irene

Cara and ‘Call Me’ by Blondie (American Gigolo).

His work for film has seen him win no less than three Academy Awards that sit proudly

alongside his four Golden Globes, four Grammys and in 2004 was an inductee into the

Dance Music Hall of Fame for his outstanding contribution to the music industry.

As well as his own esteemed work as a solo artist Moroder has worked with a veritable

who’s who of icons including Elton John, Cher, Janet Jackson, Freddy Mercury, David

Bowie, Chaka Khan, Cheap Trick, and Pat Benatar. He recently worked alongside modern

electronic maestros Afrojack, Hot Chip and Laidback Luke on the Donna Summer remix

tribute album Love To Love You Donna (out now through The Verve Music, watch single

‘Love To Love You Baby’ feat. Chris Cox).

In 2013 Moroder contributed to Daft Punk’s Random Access Memories (out now through

Columbia Records) with ‘Giorgio By Moroder’, that featured autobiographical lyrics from

Moroder’s amid electro-beats and a swirling orchestra. The same year Moroder performed

around the world as a DJ including appearances at Way Out West in Sweden, WIRE in

Japan, Electric Picnic in Ireland, Electronic Beats in Vienna and at Sydney’s own VIVID

Festival in 2014, where he was met with huge acclaim.

‘A night celebrating the music of dance pioneer Giorgio Moroder was as

lavish, dynamic and sexually charged as disco itself.’

 – ★★★★★ Five Stars The Guardian

In January Moroder announced his first solo studio album in over 30 years. 74 Is The New

24 is set for release later this year and features collaborations with Kylie, Britney Spears,

Charli XCX, Matthew Koma, Mikky Ekko, Sia and more. The title track and first single,  ‘74

Is The New 24’, is an explosive piece of dance floor brilliance that not only evokes

Moroder’s legacy of disco but hails him as one of the most important acts to watch in 2015.

Climbing the Top 10 throughout Europe, second single ‘Right Here, Right Now’ features

celestial vocals from Kylie herself and an inescapable hook.

Giorgio Moroder’s forthcoming Australian and New Zealand headline performances are a

unique opportunity to witness one of modern music’s biggest influences in action. With a

new collection of sure fire dance floor fillers as well as a jaw dropping back catalogue,

these are set to be some the exciting shows of 2015. Don’t miss out.
