CHIC to Replace D’Angelo at Outside Lands
D’Angelo has cancelled the remainder of his current comeback tour due to a medical emergency. One of those dates include a marquee set at San Francisco, CA’s Outside Lands Festival. CHIC featuring Nile Rodgers will take his slot closing the Sutro Stage. According to the fest, “CHIC is a party band and the finest purveyor of uptown disco and downtown funk. Co-founder Nile Rodgers has an extraordinary history of collaborations as producer and performer with many artists including Madonna, David Bowie’s most successful album ‘Let’s Dance’ and most recently Daft Punk.”
Outside Lands kicks off on Friday. Confirmed acts include: Paul McCartney, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Phoenix, Band of Horses, Willie Nelson, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, Hall & Oates, Kurt Vile, The National, Yeasayer, Trombone Shorty and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, among others.
