On sale 9am Friday 07 September 2018
It was announced today that the legendary Nile Rodgers & CHIC will headline a series of special arena concerts across the U.K. this festive season. Fans will be able to see the band perform all of their incredible hit songs in a brand new and expanded set. This series of special appearances will mark the end of an amazing year for Nile Rodgers – who was most recently appointed the Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame and The Chief Creative Advisor for the iconic Abbey Road Studios.
Most recently Nile Rodgers & CHIC teamed up with Mura Masa, Cosha and Vic Mensa for the release of ‘Till The World Falls’ on Virgin EMI. The song quickly became a summer staple on BBC Radio 2 and other radio formats and was taken from the group’s new album It’s About Time, their first new album in 25 years, which is set to be released on September 28, 2018.
Inspired by talent, multiple Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, guitarist, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee and Songwriters Hall of Fame inductee, Nile Rodgers is always collaborating and working with musical superstars and new artists alike. This is exemplified with Nile Rodgers & CHIC’s new record It’s About Time, which features incredible music talent including Elton John, Emeli Sande, Lady Gaga, Nao, Mura Masa, Stefflon Don, Cosha and Craig David alongside the likes of California’s Anderson.Paak and Chicagoan Vic Mensa, among others.
As the co-founder of CHIC, Rodgers pioneered a new musical language with chart-topping hits like ‘Le Freak,’ (the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records) and ‘Everybody Dance’, even sparking the advent of hip-hop with ‘Good Times’. His work with CHIC and his production credits with artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna has helped sell over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide, while his innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure, and Sam Smith have kept him in the vanguard of contemporary music.
