Lionel Richie and CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers BRAND NEW tour dates:

International superstar, Lionel Richie, has a discography of albums and singles that are second to none.  His music is part of the fabric of pop music; in fact, Lionel Richie is one of only two songwriters in history to achieve the honour of having #1 records for nine consecutive years. With over 100 million albums sold worldwide, an Oscar, a Golden Globe, four Grammy awards and the distinction of MusiCares person of the year in 2016, the Tuskegee, Alabama native is a true music icon.   

There can be little argument that CHIC was disco’s greatest band and among music legends the co-founder and guitarist Nile Rodgers is truly exceptional.  Rodgers pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping pop smashes like "Le Freak”," Dance Dance Dance (Yowsah, Yowsah, Yowsah)”, “I Want Your Love” and “Everybody Dance”. “Good Times” was not only CHIC’S biggest global hit but defined a whole music, an entire era and sparked the event of hip-hop!

 

Rodgers amplifies his legacy as a multi-Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger, guitarist by continuing to traverse new terrain, with more recent collaborations including Daft Punk, Pharrell Williams, Avicii, Laura Mvula, Keith Urban, Disclosure and Sam Smith. Historic and defining work as producer and performer with artists including Sister Sledge, Diana Ross, David Bowie, Bryan Ferry, Duran Duran and Madonna is legendary. On April 7, 2017 Nile Rodgers was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame and received an Award for Musical Excellence.
