"Madness, mayhem, a whole bunch of hits - and good times - that's what we do when we play live.

"I am the happiest man to still be walking this earth, coz I'm a two-times cancer survivor and you guys have been showing us tons of love, so get ready to party coz I'm with you."

The disco legends will headline a night of uber-cool disco, hip hop and rock in the Pastures in the shadow of Alnwick Castle on Wednesday, July 11, as part of the Summer House Sounds series of concerts.

Nile Rodgers and CHIC, famous for hits including Everybody Dance, Le Freak and Good Times, have enjoyed global success for more than 40 years. They remain as relevant today as they did when they first hit the scene back in 1976.
