American record producer, songwriter, musician, composer, arranger, and guitarist Nile Rodgers and his band Chic rolled into Glasgow as part of his ‘Its About Time’ tour and wowed the fans with some classic music.
From the opening bars of Everybody Dance, followed by Dance, Dance, Dance and I Want Your Love, the near-capacity crowd was on their feet. I’m Coming Out and Upside Down were hits for Diana Ross but written and produced by Rodgers, and tonight’s setlist would see many of these collaborations with other artists from throughout the career of Nile Rodgers.
The Greatest Dancer and We Are Family, both smash hits for Sister Sledge but coming from the Nile Rodgers stable, as did Like A Virgin by Madonna, Notorious by Duran Duran and Get Lucky by Daft Punk. A small selection of his work from the thousands of hits he has written or produced over the years.
