Multi-Grammy Award winner, renowned producer, composer, singer-songwriter and musician, Nile Rodgers has confirmed his appearance on Liverpool's scenic waterfront, on Thursday 16th September, performing live alongside his celebrated disco outfit, CHIC and adored local indie heroes, The Zutons.

The iconic guitarist, whose first role within the industry involved touring and playing music for the children's TV show, Sesame Street, is without a doubt one of the biggest music stars on the planet. Quickly rising to international acclaim, fame and success back in the '70s with his band CHIC, co-founded with late-great bass player, Bernard Edwards, the group are widely accepted as the greatest disco band of all time, pioneering and delivering the genre to music fans all over the globe.

Amongst some of their biggest records are crowd-pleasing, danceable tracks the likes of 'Good Times', 'Everybody' and mega-hit, 'Le Freak', which sold more than seven million copies worldwide and became the best-selling 7” single in the history of Atlantic Records - the label the group were signed to back in 1978.

Following the loss of Bernard Edwards in the '90s, Rodgers took a side step from performing with CHIC and instead dived headfirst into producing in the studio, collaborating with a host of celebrated artists. The jaw-dropping list of collaborators includes Daft Punk, Duran Duran, Grace Jones, Luther Vandross, Diana Ross, Madonna, Rod Stewart, Depeche Mode, Mark Ronson, Disclosure...

Now, he's raring to get back out on the stage once more and, much to the delight of fans in the North of England, has scheduled a live show on the Liverpool waterfront! And what's more, he'll be joined one of the city's most cherished indie bands - The Zutons!

Catch the Liverpudlian five-piece belting out some of their best-known tracks, including 'Valerie', 'You Will You Won't' and 'Pressure Point', in support of Nile Rodgers & CHIC this autumn.

Witness one of the greatest in music doing his thang live!
