The legendary Nile Rodgers and CHIC due to headline show at Haydock Racecourse in June and Getintothis’ Rick Leach has the details.
Nile Rodgers & CHIC will be visiting the historic racecourse on the June 22, as part of the summer season of live concerts already announced by The Jockey Club and Haydock Racecourse.
As the co-founder of CHIC, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like Le Freak, sparked the advent of hip-hop with Good Times, and won CHIC 11 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame nominations.
His work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna have sold over 300 million albums and 50 million singles worldwide while his innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary pop music.
Nile Rodgers performance as headliner at Liverpool Music Week in 2017 was one of the undoubted highlights of the year, winning him even more fans and a return to Merseyside this summer is something to look forward to with keen anticipation.
Releasing their ninth studio album It’s About Time in 2018, the release saw CHIC once again work with the cream of the crop of the current music stars ranging from Mura Masa and Stefflon Don to Lady Gaga.
With more than 200 production credits to his name, the scope of Nile Rodgers‘ peerless influence is undeniable.
