    Their debut album Dogrel was Mercury & Choice-nominated, they've toured endlessly with labelmates Idles, and although worldly in influence, distinctly allude to Irish vernacular in everything they've done thus far.

    Waterfront Hall

    Belfast

    Nile Rodgers Approved Press Shot

    One of the most essential live draws in recent years, funk/disco/pop songwriter Nile Rodgers and Chic return once more (nature is healing), playing Belfast's Custom House Square on August 24.

    Regarding themselves as a rock band in a disco movement, the group released an almost-inappropriate number of classic disco/funk/soul singles in their original run from '76-'83. Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards had been playing together for years, finally releasing Chic's debut single 'Everybody Dance' in 1977.

    These days, they're one of the naturally tightest live bands in the world, selling out practically everywhere they go, with setlists peppered with some of the instantly recognisable hits - from Madonna to Daft Punk - penned by frontman Rodgers from the '70s through until today.

    Tickets are available from Ticketmaster. Doors open at 6pm.
