Nile Rodgers & CHIC plus Kokoroko

Friday 21 June 2019

This Session is sold out, but you can see Nile Rogers & CHIC headline our 100th Session on Sunday 23 June.

The legendary hit-makers Nile Rodgers & CHIC will be making a triumphant return to Eden following their spectacular first Session back in 2013.

Nile Rodgers is a multiple Grammy-winning composer, producer, arranger and guitarist with more than 200 production credits to his name.

As the co-founder of CHIC, Nile pioneered a musical language that generated chart-topping hits like Le Freak, sparked the advent of hip-hop with Good Times, and won CHIC 11 Rock & Roll Hall of Fame nominations.

Nile Rodgers transcends all styles of music across every generation with a body of work that’s gained him inductions into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017 and the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2016.

His work in the CHIC Organization and his productions for artists such as David Bowie, Diana Ross and Madonna have sold over 500 million albums and 75 million singles worldwide while his innovative, trendsetting collaborations with Daft Punk, Avicii, Sigala, Disclosure and Sam Smith reflect the vanguard of contemporary music.

CHIC released their ninth studio album, It’s About Time, in September last year. The record features collaborations with Lady Gaga, Elton John, Stefflon Don and Emeli Sandé. CHIC have been nominated in the International Group category of this year’s BRIT Awards.

Kokoroko are a London-based Afrobeat 8-piece band led by trumpeter Sheila Maurice-Grey. They are inspired by Fela Kuti, Ebo Taylor, Tony Allen and the great sounds that come out of West Africa. They specialise in a soul-shaking, horn-fuelled sound with West African roots and Inner London hues. Abusey Junction, a track they contributed to a compilation of London jazz called We Out Here, has received more than 30m plays on YouTube.

Tickets for the Viewing Platform for People with Disabilities

When buying your tickets online, you’ll be able to select a Viewing Platform for People with Disabilities ticket (subject to availability). Once you’ve purchased your ticket, you’ll be emailed and asked to complete an accessibility form, which will include the option to request a free space for a Personal Assistant, if required. From 2019 we will not be issuing separate tickets for Personal Assistants; instead, we will ask for their name on the accessibility form and will then associate this name with your Viewing Platform for People with Disabilities ticket.

If Viewing Platform for People with Disabilities tickets aren’t available to book, then customers with a disability should secure Standard Tickets for their whole party, then contact our Box Office (01726 811972) to be put on their list for a wheelchair space, either on the platform, should more spaces become available, or in the Arena.
