BluesFest presents Chic feat. Nile Rodgers
Chic feat Nile Rodgers at The O2
Following their limelight-stealing set at Glastonbury Festival, Chic feat. Nile Rodgers have been announced as the final headliners for BluesFest at The O2, opening the festival which runs from Friday 27 to Sunday 29 October 2017.
Chic have enjoyed widespread mainstream success since their inception in the late 1970s thanks to a string of hits including Le Freak, Good Times and Everybody Dance; while its founder and frontman Nile Rodgers has produced and played on some of the biggest-selling albums of all time, by artists including Madonna, David Bowie, Duran Duran and Diana Ross. He will be bringing his legendary “$1 billion guitar” to London for this rare performance in the capital, which sees Chic join an esteemed rollcall of artists already lined-up to perform at BluesFest 2017 including Steely Dan, The Doobie Brothers, Daryl Hall & John Oates and Chris Isaak.
"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 are two heavyweights of the blues world in the form of revered American blues-rock outfits Gov’t Mule and Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band.
BluesFest Director Leo Green:
“Securing bands of the calibre of Chic, Gov’t Mule and Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band is testament to our commitment to presenting the very best acts from around the world. These are three phenomenal live outfits who will all bring something extra special to the weekend’s proceedings.”
