Chaka Khan to join CHIC feat Nile Rodgers at BluesFest

All will take to London's O2 on the 27 October 2017.

Legendary funk artist Chaka Khan will join Chic featuring Nile Rodgers at this year’s BluesFest. Taking place at London’s O2 on the 27 October 2017, the multi-award winning Khan will play as part of the three day festival which takes over the vast South East London venue.

Chaka Khan emerged onto the scene as part of Rufus in the 1970s, before the queen of funk went it alone, launching a solo career with I’m Every Woman in 1978.
