Giorgio Moroder To Recreate NYC's Storied Studio 54 Nightclub? - EDM News

Aside from the top tier DJs and Electric Daisy Carnival, fans of EDM culture may now have another reason to go to Las Vegas - Giorgio Moroder has recently announced a new project that would bring a disco review type show to the Las Vegas strip.

MAGNETIC RECOMMENDS: An Interview With Bruce Sudano

Here are the words from the U.K.'s Guardian-

the 73-year-old producer outlined the new project in collaboration with "a huge American management company". It follows his newfound success as a DJ, and the renewed interest in his work following a collaboration with Daft Punk on their hit album Random Access Memories. He described it as 'a permanent show, based on disco … 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 De 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."

No word on the other DJs involved, but from the sounds of things this might be a modern way to look bad at some of the earliest moments in electronic music.
