En route to the Galway Arts Festival Chic’s Nile Rodgers talks about his friendship with Michael Jackson and David Bowie, working with Daft Punk and sharing the stage with The Smiths’ Johnny Marr.

And is Nile looking forward to his Irish visit?
“I have to say every time we play in Ireland it gets more and more fantastic, the fans are incredible. One night after we played these two guys ran down down the street after our car and started undressing! I was like, ‘Wow dudes it’s cold, we’re not in Ibiza bro!’ They were so pumped up after the show, it was incredible! Every time we play it gets better. It’s going to be a blast.”
Chic play the Galway Arts Festival (July 19); Mandela Hall, Belfast (August 1) and Liss Ard, Skibbereen (4)
