The Jockey Club Liveare thrilled to announce the legendary NILE RODGERS & CHIC will be performing at Aintree Racecourse on Friday 12th June 2020.
Nile Rodgers’ talent and his honorable legacy is nothing short of extraordinary, having won multiple GRAMMY awards as a composer, producer, arranger and guitarist, he consistently challenges the boundaries of modern music. As co-founder of CHIC, and the Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-toping hits like “Le Freak” and sparked the advent of hip-hop with “Good Times”.
Collaborating with some of the most illustrious artists over the years, his revolutionary productions for the likes of David Bowie (incl. ‘Lets Dance’), Diana Ross (incl. ‘Upside Down’, ‘I’m Coming Out’) and Madonna (incl. ‘Material Girl’, ‘Like A Virgin’) have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide while his influential collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary music. With a chart topping music career spanning four decades, fans can expect to hear some of the most acclaimed and much-loved pop anthems of all time. Nile Rodgers & CHIC are sure to put on a performance truly like no other.
Dickon White, Regional Director of Jockey Club Racecourses North West:
“We’re beyond excited to have Nile Rodgers & CHIC join our summer line up on Friday 12th June at Aintree Racecourse. They were exceptional at Haydock Park last year and we know they’ll have everyone dancing.”
