A MUCH-LOVED West Yorkshire venue has announced its first headliners for shows taking place next summer.

Nile Rodgers & CHIC, Richard Ashcroft, Jess Glynne, and rock legends Status Quo will star in Live at The Piece Hall 2024.

The chart-topping artists will take to the stage at the Halifax attraction across dates in June and August.

Nile Rodgers & CHIC - along with support acts disco queen Sophie Ellis-Bextor, and 80s-inspired pop stars Deco - return to the region on Sunday, June 16.

The multiple Grammy award winner is no stranger to The Piece Hall having played two sell-out shows at the landmark in 2022.

Britpop legend Richard Ashcroft is in town on Friday, August 2, and pop singer Jess Glynne performs less than a week later on Thursday, August 8.

Long-time rockers Status Quo, supported by The Alarm, round out the first batch of announcements with a show in the venue on Tuesday, August 13.

The Piece Hall has just enjoyed a record-breaking year with more than 125,000 tickets sold across 22 headline shows by the likes of Sting, Queens of The Stone Age, George Ezra and boygenius.

Excitement is already building ahead of what is set to be another record-breaking summer – with many more headline artists to be revealed very soon.

Nicky Chance Thompson MBE DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Charitable Trust, said: “I know that fans of our Live at The Piece Hall series look forward to the announcements of artists almost as much as the gigs themselves, so I’m proud to reveal the first four stars of our 2024 line up. 

“We welcome back one of my personal favourites, and the king of disco, Nile Rodgers and CHIC alongside some amazing artists including queen of soulful pop Jess Glynne, the much-requested indie god Richard Ashcroft and iconic rockers Status Quo.

“Word is spreading fast about just how special the experience is for both the artists and the audience in our iconic courtyard, and I can’t wait to share more news with you soon.”

The Piece Hall has welcomed more than 13.5 million visitors since it re-opened in 2017.
Cuffe and Taylor, which entered into a co-promoter partnership with The Piece Hall Trust in 2022, has extensive experience in staging major concerts.

Tickets for all four shows go on general sale at 9am this Friday (October 27) via ticketmaster.co.uk
