Two of the UK’s most exciting House heroes combine to tour with Nile Rodgers and his legendary disco outfit CHIC this month:
- March 21st – London – Roundhouse (SOLD OUT)
- March 22nd – Leeds – O2 Academy
- March 23rd – Glasgow – O2 Academy
- March 24th – Manchester – O2 Apollo
- March 25th – Birmingham – O2 Academy
“If it wasn’t for a DJ there might not be any CHIC records. We were discovered not on the internet but in a nightclub, which is why I chose to invite some of the best DJs out there right now along on my UK tour. Our disco music is made for having ‘Good Times’ on the dancefloor. I am thrilled to have the support of young house talents Butler & Bontan and Krystal Klear; they feel like the next chapter, representing the future breed of expert DJs, who’ll continue to spin records that make ‘Everybody Dance’.
Butler & Bontan:
“Chic have written some of the most memorable songs in history. For us to be joining them on their UK tour is a true blessing and an absolute honour.”
