Giorgio Moroder and Chic to play the Hollywood Bowl in May
Classic disco fans, break out your wide lapels and polyester, because a ’70s dance revival is coming to the Hollywood Bowl in May.
Nile Rodgers‘ Chic and Giorgio Moroder are teaming up for a bill showcasing the ongoing love affair between contemporary producers and the vibes of vintage dance music. Younger electronic acts including Oliver, Tensnake and Hard’s Gary Richards (in his Destructo alias) will open the night.
The show, produced by Andrew Hewitt, Bill Silva and Hard Events, will hit the Hollywood Bowl on May 10. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m.
“This is a unique show we are bringing to the Hollywood Bowl,” Hewitt said. “We’re looking forward to an evening of disco, funk and future music from legends like Chic and Giorgio Moroder alongside new talent Destructo, Oliver and Tensnake.”
The bill re-unites Rodgers and Moroder, who each appeared as marquee collaborators on Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories,” which won album of the year at this year’s Grammys.
Giorgio Moroder played his first live DJ set at Deep Space in Brooklyn, New York in 2012 playing a classics set and dropping his latest track ” Razor’s Edge” . Listen to the full set here:
