Featuring

Duran Duran

Duran Duran appearing at this event

Formed in Birmingham, England, in 1978, pop megastars Duran Duran are one of the most culturally influential and commercially successful bands of all time, topping the charts around the world over the past three decades and selling more than 100 million records worldwide. After acrimonious splits, Simon Le Bon and Nick Rhodes relaunched the band in the mid-90s and the band continued to be successful. 2003 saw the group reform with Simon Le Bon, John Taylor, Nick Rhodes and Roger Taylor, and the reaction proved their fan base is as huge as ever. The band has been honoured with multiple Grammy, BRIT, Ivor Novello, and MTV Video Music Lifetime Achievement Awards, as well as a 20th Century Style Icon award from the City of Milan. Tireless innovators, they are always at the vanguard of music, fashion, art, technology and film — a group with unique and everlasting appeal. Now a seemingly unstoppable force, with no fewer than five prestigious Lifetime Achievement Awards under their belts, the four original members of Duran Duran are in a category with only a handful of other internationally acclaimed artists.

Chic featuring Nile Rodgers

Chic featuring Nile Rodgers appearing at this event

Chic are an American disco and R&B band that were founded in 1976 by guitarist Nile Rodgers and bassist Bernard Edwards. The group, still fronted by Rodgers, are best known for hit songs including Le Freak, Dance Dance Dance, I Want Your Love, Good Times - the latter of which provided the bedrock of The Sugarhill Gang's A Rapper's Delight, the first multiple-platinum Hip Hop single. The group regard themselves as a rock band for the disco movement 'that made good on hippie peace, love and freedom'. In October 2012, Chic were nominated for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for the seventh time. Nile Rodgers, whose 1958 Fender Stratocaster has played on an estimated $2bn worth of hit music, also has numerous producer credits to his name - including Let's Dance, David Bowie's biggest-selling album, and Madonna's blockbuster album Like a Virgin, plus records by Sister Sledge, Duran Duran and Diana Ross. In March 2013, Rodgers was profiled in the highly rated BBC4 documentary special, Nile Rodgers: The Hitmaker.
