One of the greatest songwriter, producer, performer and guitarists of all time - NILE RODGERS & CHIC - will be coming to Doncaster Racecourse this Summer on Saturday 16th July 2022.
With over five decades of classics at their fingertips, Nile & his exemplary live band will be firing up their classic hit machine for an evening of “Good Times” that’s guaranteed to make “Everybody Dance”. Coming to the prestigious Yorkshire racecourse on Saturday 16th July 2022, this special ‘Live After Racing’ fixture will offer spectators a full day at the races, capped-off by an unforgettable headline set by one of the world’s most influential pop stars late into the evening. Tickets are available for presale next Wednesday (9th February) @ 9AM for O2 customers, with general sale available the following Friday.
Among music legends, 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 and the Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame, Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like “Le Freak,” (the biggest selling single in the history of Atlantic Records) and sparked the advent of hip-hop with “Good Times”. Nile transcends all styles of music across every generation with a body of work that’s garnered him inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Nile is also the co-founder and Chairman of the We are Family Foundation and also the recipient of their Humanitarian Award.
Currently, Nile serves as the first-ever Chief Creative Advisor for the incomparable Abbey Road Studios and he recently launched the critically acclaimed Apple Music 1’s “Deep Hidden Meaning Radio with Nile Rodgers”.
His unforgettable live performances with CHIC have been included in “festival best performances” at both Glastonbury and Coachella resulting in a BBC Music Awards nomination for “Best Live Performance”, and the LA Times stating “Nile Rodgers influence stretches all over Coachella, beaming the sound of a better future”.
Nile’s work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists like David Bowie, Diana Ross, and Madonna have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide while his trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Keith Urban, Disclosure, Sam Smith and Lady Gaga reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.
Sharing a little of that “festival moment“ magic with Doncaster this Summer, Nile Rodgers & Chic will headline Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday 16th July 2022.
