MUSIC pioneer Giorgio Moroder has announced his first ever live tour.

The 78-year-old, dubbed the ‘Father of Disco’ will play a number of shows across Europe, including a date at Glasgow’s Royal Concert Hall.

The Celebration of the 80s tour will include highlights and dance hits past and present from the Italian producer and songwriter’s prolific career, where he has worked with the likes of David Bowie, Kylie Minogue and Janet Jackson.

He will also pay tribute to longtime muse Donna Summer, with the disco diva live on screen performing in sync with Giorgio and his band.

He said: “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!”

Moroder was behind Summer’s hits I Feel Love and Love to Love You Baby, and collaborated with Philip Oakey on 1984’s Together In Electric Dreams.

He also produced Blondie’s Call Me and, more recently, has worked with the likes of Daft Punk and Sia.

Tickets for the shows go on sale this Friday.
