It looks like the highly esteemed musician, DJ, producer and song-writer is set to hang out his shingle somewhere in Vegasland in the near future.
In the wake of a flurry of activity including an appearance in the Station to Station project, collaborations with Daft Punk and Nile Rodgers, and live DJ sets, Giorgio Moroder has announced plans to create a Vegas stage show. He had the following to say of his plans:
I would do the DJing, but maybe before me we have another famous DJ, maybe somebody after. We of course have a ball, dancers in a cage: recreate Studio 54, and have it in Vegas, Macau, London…
Of course I wouldn’t just use my own songs—there are so many great disco songs, Chic and all those guys—and I would do probably an hour and a half. We’re thinking of starting first in Vegas [but] it will probably be a bit like Blue Man Group—they have a franchise. We might even talk to the Cirque Du Soleil team.
I would be playing, and then maybe later on if we had a franchise I would do one a week, or a month, and then a famous DJ would take over. And now you have so many great DJs that I don’t think there would be any problem finding the right one.
