Following their limelight-stealing set last week at England’s Glastonbury Festival, CHIC AND NILE RODGERS are announced as one of the headliners for this year’s London BLUESFEST.
They will open the festival with a show at THE O2 ARENA on Friday October 27th.
Chic have revelled in universal mainstream success since their origin in the late ‘70s … the disco days of Le Freak, Good Times and Everybody Dance.
Founder and frontman Nile Rodgers has produced and played on some of the biggest-selling albums of all time… By legendary artists such as Madonna, David Bowie, Duran Duran and Diana Ross.
He’ll be bringing his legendary “$1 billion guitar” to London for a rare performance to join a roll-call of esteemed musicians that already includes Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Daryl Hall & John Oates and Chris Isaak.
Nile Rogers said, “We love performing in the UK and it’s an honour to be asked to headline this year’s BluesFest alongside the likes of Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers and Hall & Oates. Our fans can expect a night of funk and soul featuring all of our hits and maybe a few surprises!”
Also recently announced for BluesFest – Friday October 27th to Sunday 29th – are two RAW RAMP favourites, the blues-rock outfits Gov’t Mule and the Kenny Wayne Shepherd [picture inset.]
