Giorgio Moroder To Recreate Studio 54 With Las Vegas Residency

Giorgio Moroder revealed plans to recreate the feel of New York's legendary Studio 54 with a Las Vegas stage show during a recent interview with The Guardian. News of a potential stay in Vegas follows Moroder's recent return to the fore as an integral part of the latest Daft Punk LP. The permanent show rooted in disco called An Evening With Moroder is the collaborative brainchild of "a huge American management company" and the legendary DJ and producer. Tentative plans include Moroder at the helm as the headlining DJ with other famous DJ's potentially opening and closing for the sonic pioneer. Though there have been no dates or venues set for the show's debut, Moroder has stated that the show should be ready to go within a few months. Check the statement below for more details from Moroder. Watch the footage of Moroder's full interview via The Guardian. Scroll down to peep a bit of throwback footage of Giorgio Moroder in action.

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.
