Tickets - seats numbered from 34.50 to 74.75 euros - are available in the Box Office Toscana sales points ( tel. 055.210804) and online at .

Acclaimed by many as the "father of disco music", if not even the founder of electronic dance, at 78, Oscar-winning and multi-award-winning Grammy Awards, Moroder will be in Florence on a tour that, between April and May 2019 , will stop in 15 European cities.

A Celebration of the 80's will see the Italian singer-songwriter, producer, composer and DJ show off the highlights of his prolific career in a spectacular theatrical show alongside his band.

A Celebration of the 80's will be an evening full of dance hits, both classic and recent. The performance will remain true to its roots but with adaptations that look to the future. Fans will see Moroder headliner, struggling with vocoders, electronic effects and sounds. He will play the piano and will share personal stories that have never left the walls of his studio. It will pay tribute to the long-standing muse Donna Summer with the live-on-screen diva that will perform in sync with Moroder and her band.

Moroder comments on his first live tour: "It's something I always wanted to do, the fans kept on contacting me, asking if I would ever do a real tour. In the past it was unthinkable that the producers would abandon their studies. That territory was reserved for singers. Today, DJ and music producers have become superstars of dance pop music, so the time is right and I can't wait to do it! ".

Moroder has had an important influence in the music industry for over 55 years, starting in 1963. He was the first to put dance music on a repetitive percussive beat and to abandon the laws of harmony by placing the synthesizer at the center of the musical project .

The first big awards came in the 70s with the music and productions for Donna Summer (I Feel Love, On the Radio and Love to Love You Baby, Hot Stuff among others), awards that then led to other great collaborations with Cher (Bad Love), Blondie (Call Me), David Bowie (Cat People), Debbie Harry (Rush Rush), Freddie Mercury (Love Kills), Bonnie Tyler (Here She Comes) and Pat Benatar (Here's My Heart).

A huge contribution to pop music that has led the artist to be honored with four Grammy Awards.

In addition to working with the greatest artists of the 70s and 80s, Moroder composed and produced the soundtracks of many cult films of the 80s such as "American Gigolo", "Cat People", "Scarface", "Electric Dreams". "," The Never Ending Story "," Top Gun "and" Midnight Express ".

Midnight Express, Take My Breath Away from the movie "Top Gun" and What a Feeling from the movie "Flashdance" earned him three Oscars and four Golden Globes.

Starting in 2013, Moroder performed as a DJ, produced the music for the Google Racer game and contributed to Daft Punk's Giorgio by Moroder from their album Random Access Memories, a collaboration that earned him the Grammy for 2014 'Album of the Year. In 2015 Moroder published Déjà Vu, his latest studio album, which includes collaborations with Sia, Charli XCX, Kylie Minogue, Britney Spears and Kelis, among others.
