Nile Rodgers And Chic Bring The Good Times To Halifax Next June

The Piece Hall in Halifax has already announced concerts next year from the Manic Street Preachers, The Specials and Kaiser Chiefs.

Now the legendary Nile Rodgers brings Chic to the historic Yorkshire venue on Friday 18 June. Rodgers has co-written, written or produced some of the most iconic disco hits with Chic including Good Times, I Want Your Love and Le Freak.

As a producer he has worked with Diana Ross (Upside Down), Sister Sledge (He’s the Greatest Dancer, We Are Family), David Bowie (Let’s Dance) and Madonna (Like A Virgin)

Latterly he had a worldwide hit with Daft Punk and Pharell Williams in the track Get Lucky.

I have seen him live many times and the show contains all these hits and those you never knew that he had a hand in.

Support act for the evening is Liverpudlian Rebecca Ferguson - who has released a few new tracks this year that just happen to be written or produced by Rodgers.

The Halifax concert is on Friday 18 June 2021.

Tickets go on general sale Friday 11 September from:
