Nile Rodgers And CHIC To Make A Welcome Return To Scarborough

The legendary Nile Rodgers & CHIC are returning to the Yorkshire coast for a massive outdoor show at Scarborough Open Air Theatre.

The undisputed Kings of Disco will play the UK’s largest purpose-built outdoor concert arena on Friday August 20.

Nile Rodgers is a multiple Grammy Award-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist with more than 200 production credits to his name.

As the co-founder of CHIC, he pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits such as Le Freak, Good Times and Everybody Dance that sparked the advent of hip-hop.

Nile Rodgers & CHIC are no strangers to Scarborough Open Air Theatre having played a sell-out show at the venue in 2018. They were due to play in Scarborough this summer only for the show to be cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which will have left many fans, myself included, very disappointed.

Tickets go on general sale via www.scarboroughopenairtheatre.com at 9am on Friday 9 October.
