Chic are back in town

CHIC featuring Nile Rogers will play the Mandela Hall on Wednesday, August 1.

Chic are probably the most influential band of the Disco era, responsible for classic singles including ‘Le Freak’, ‘Everybody Dance’, ‘I Want Your Love’ and ‘Good Times’, which was famously sampled by The Sugar Hill Gang on ‘Rappers Delight’.

Their now legendary guitarist / producer Nile Rodgers has gone on to produce some of the 20th century’s most memorable singles, including Madonna’s ‘Like A Virgin’, David Bowie’s ‘Let’s Dance’, and Sister Sledge’s ‘We Are Family’, among many others.

Chic have made a huge live resurgence over the last number of years, playing stunning headline slots, consisting of all their greatest hits, at contemporary music festivals across the globe, including Bestival, Electric Picnic and The Warehouse Project, not to mention two consecutive sellout nights at Dublin’s Tripod.

Tickets (£29.50 plus booking fee) are on sale now.

Doors are at 8pm and support comes from Space Dimension Controller (Disco Set)

Tickets are available in person from The Stiff Kitten, QUB SU and from 22 Ticketmaster outlets provincewide including Easons.
