Nile Rodgers and Chic cancel Westport Festival show

Sad news for Nile Rodgers and Chic Irish fans, the band had to cancel their appearance at Westport Festival of Music and Performing Arts which takes place June 23rd-24th in Mayo.

They were negotiating with a French festival to play June 21st and then be financially able to travel to Ireland but it didn’t work out.

The band is still scheduled to play in a London festival on June 17th. The band’s agent said in a statement that Nile Rodgers is very excited about Wesport Festival of Music and Performing Arts and the band is optimistic about being able to participate in 2013.
