The Jockey Club Live and Haydock Park Racecourse are delighted to announce that NILE RODGERS & CHIC will be visiting the historic racecourse on the 22nd June, joining previously announced Jess Glynne (7th June) and Rick Astley (20th July) as part of their summer season of live concerts.
Nile Rodgers is truly exceptional. He amplifies his legacy as a multiple GRAMMY-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist by constantly traversing new musical terrain and successfully expanding the boundaries of popular music. 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 (incl. ‘Lets Dance’), Diana Ross (incl. ‘Upside Down’, ‘I’m Coming Out’) and Madonna (incl. ‘Material Girl’, ‘Like A Virgin’) 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 music. Releasing their ninth studio album ‘It’s About Time’ in 2018, the release saw the band once again work the cream of the crop of the current music stars ranging from Mura Masa and Stefflon Don to Lady Gaga.
Expect to hear some of the best-known pop anthems from the last four decades. With more than 200 production credits to his name, the scope of Nile Rodgers' peerless influence is undeniable.
Regional Director for Jockey Club Racecourses North West, Dickon White said:
“Having the legendary Nile Rodgers & CHIC headline Haydock Park in June is surely going to be one of the highlights of the summer. His vast catalogue of hits over the decades will have everyone, young and old, dancing the night away after a great evening of racing so be sure to get your tickets early to avoid disappointment.”
