When are Nile Rodgers and Chic performing in London?

The show is coming in less than two months, with Nile Rodgers and Chic, who Rodgers founded, performing at the O2 Academy in Brixton on 19 September 2022.

Rodgers is no stranger to performing in the capital, and has played in London as recently as June this year at Kenwood House in Hampstead Heath, London.

Ahead of the performance, Rodgers said: “After the blues of Covid we’ve had an incredible summer in the UK getting up front and close with all of our incredible fans.

“What better way to celebrate the last day of summer and the first day of autumn than with our final UK shows of the year at Brixton and Manchester.

“We want to invite all the Lionesses who’ve made the whole country so proud to get up on stage for what will truly be Good Times!”
