The incredible Nile Rodgers & Chic will perform an open air concert at Aintree Racecourse this June.
The Jockey Club Live has announced that the legendary musician will take to the stage following an afternoon’s racing at the famous racecourse on Friday 12th June 2020.
Chic co-founder Rodgers has won multiple GRAMMY awards as a composer, producer, arranger and guitarist. His incredibly successful career has seen him consistently challenge the boundaries of modern music. Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers has generated numerous chart-topping hits like “Le Freak” and hip-hop forerunner “Good Times”.
Over the years, he’s collaborated with some of the most recognisable names in music, including the likes of David Bowie (‘Lets Dance’), Diana Ross (‘Upside Down’, ‘I’m Coming Out’) and Madonna (‘Material Girl’, ‘Like A Virgin’). His revolutionary production style has contributed to sales of over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide. Whilst influential collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith have led the way in the development 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.
