Review

Hot competition for Jools Holland this year, as the main TV channels all put on their own New Year parties: Nile Rodgers and Chic are the live act either side of the fireworks on BBC1, performing on the banks of the Thames. If the disco king doesn’t start a party in your living room, nothing will.

Summary

The award-winning musician and producer performs live from London with his funk band in a concert to see out the year. The show celebrates the band's 40th anniversary, and will feature some of their most popular songs, including Le Freak, Good Times and Everybody Dance. It pauses at midnight for the annual New Year fireworks display, which has been choreographed to fit a specially edited medley of music, and continues as the new year begins with a traditional rendition of Auld Lang Syne and more classic CHIC hits. Presented by Roman Kemp.
